ACM-ASCIS Home Coming event, history of...

al salamo 3alikom wa ra7mato Allah,

after 45 days, I felt It's important to write my feelings toward the last Home Coming event I've participated in...

That was my third participation. When I was in first year, I remember the ACM-ASCIS steering committee just come and spread registration forms among the students attending the Math lecture :D (i've heard yesterday that Mr. Hussein Mehanna, the founder of ACM-ASCIS has made a big show in his day, about 7 years ago)
In second year, that was my first participation, under supervision of Wael El-Gayar (Ex-president, a man I really appreciate :) ), I was the second man to present the IQs (after Moussa)... and then I realized I shouldn't come on stage again (for my low voice) :D
Last year, my second participation, was with a poster, newsletter (in cooperation with Asmaa) and sitting on the PC scrolling the IQ slides :D ... again under supervision of Wael El-Gayar, that time was much better .. specially after the words of Abdullah about the team work in the Newsletter.
Then comes my third, maybe the last, participation in the Home Coming event (BTW, Home Coming name was introduced by Mustafa, it's more realistic than 'welcome party', cuz it's not a party)...
A lot of new things... the team and the effort
Much more effort, It's my last participation, and I liked to leave a good impression
Oh, I forgot to tell u, It's under supervision of Beeboo (Abdul-Rahman Essam) now ;) , It was a wise choice by Haytham (President)/Moussa(V. President) to let the next generation do it.

At the begining, the new team caused me more time for thinking before taking any action .. that caused a tough touch with Heba Nasser, the media designer for the event ... and I wish that situation has been overcomed during the preparation time el-hamduellah.
I've used my "manager" privelage to make work go faster, It was the poster design that I thought all designs will have the same theme so it should be accomplished soon .. that didn't happen actually.
In few days I realized how they work :D ... That was interesting
The way that team worked is based on concept of Loving what they do, each is doing his best to result a wonderful output finally.
I've seen exciting designs (including decoration), that let me say "I think I've become the old fashion man!" :D

That's very good, but for a community like acm-ascis, that should be accompanied by some intermediate supervision. But still, this supervision shouldn't be now, next time n-sha2-Allah :D ... as Beeboo said, if that happened, that would have reduced the quality of the event.

Ahmad Fouad, the man who prepared the intro flash movie, he did it in one day just as I phoned him and told him we really need some intro flash. He finished the intro without sound cuz he used his friend's PC that has no sound system. He kept sending me his work more than once cuz the file was corrupted. He cared, and he did his best :) ... so he deserved an ACM-ASCIS membership ;)
NOTE: All I know about Ahmad, is that he's a third year student. Alaa Shaker recommended him, and I'm waiting to see him n-sha2-Allah.

All work done, kan 3ala 7esab el newsletter somehow ... but the newsletter is finally out el-hamdulellah with some mistakes :D ...But I really liked the articles inside ;)

Finally, the event that year was completely different ... and more attractive, and I'm sure next year n-sha2-Allah, it'll be the best.
