Ahmed Ghattas (bintk ) has been selected as COM winner for the month of June.

Over the last 3 months Ahmed has made around 35 translations of articles to Arabic, and also written a number of original articles. While English is the primary language on the wiki, we appreciate his ongoing dedication to helping his fellow Arabic-speaking developers.

We'll be sending Ahmed a a bright red Lumia 820. Please join me in congratulating him on the discussion boards.

Ahmed was up against tough competition - we'd also like to give an "honourable mention" to a few other great contributors: jappit , galazzo , somnathbanik , pavan.pareta . Next month we've got another bright red Lumia 820 for our Wiki Contributor of the Month. That could be one of our great contributors from last month or it could be you: all you need to do is contribute useful articles, example codes, tutorials, or significantly shape up the existing ones!
