JavaScript Goes Desi 

A Pakistani entrepreneur has come up with a brilliant solution to make it possible for more people from Pakistan to learn to program.

The program titled Urdu script will allow programmers to run JavaScript in Roman Urdu. This amazing initiative has been brought by Asad Memon, the technical co-founder of Remote Interview, a silicon valley based startup. Asad also believes in giving back to the community by conducting training sessions for programmers on different topics.
