Omar Shehata Joins the Cesium Team

Omar Shehata, Cesium.

We’re happy to announce that Omar Shehata has joined the Cesium team. He’ll be using his background as a graphics programmer to contribute to various open-source Cesium projects and his passion for writing and teaching to support the Cesium community on the forum and to create learning materials.

Omar graduated from St. Olaf College with majors in Computer Science and Mathematics; has published over a dozen flash games since 2009; co-founded Northfield CoderDojo to teach kids how to code; developed teaching materials that have been adopted by various Dojo chapters in the US and in Europe; and wrote the popular “Beginner’s Guide to Graphics Shaders,” which continues to be a popular reference and has been translated into Spanish, Italian, and Russian. See his personal website for more information.

Omar’s capstone project, a 4D geometry visualizer.

Welcome, Omar!
