Idd Salim Kithinji: back to code, no more

The iHub community sadly heard of the sudden passing on of Idd Salim from a short illness on the night of Tuesday, 24th Sept 2013.
Hacker, coder, 'no holds barred' blogger, blunt; these could describe Idd, and the Kenyan technology community is certainly weakened with his loss. He was one of the most talented people this country has had. We will definitely miss him - an easy going chap in person, keeping people on their toes online, and focused on his code - his customary blog sign off: ‘Wazi. Back to Code”.

We mourn him.

There will be a memorial *today* (25 Sept 2013) at 6pm at the Nailab.Please RSVP here.

Mbugua Njihia, a classmate of Idd from Starehe, penned this in remembrance:
