Published by under Events

The Google DevFest 2010 was recently held at the UP Ayala Land TechnoHub in Commonwealth Avenue, UP Campus, Quezon City. It is a series of events held on different location around the world which is organized by Google in order to learn more about the technologies and developer products that Google introduces.

I was one of the lucky individuals who was given a confirmation seat by Ms. Christine Sonco, the DevFest SE Asia Team after I learned of the scheduled event which was relayed to me by my wife thru Ms. Aileen Apolo.

Topics of the event includes the following:

  • Google Maps
  • Google Chrome and the Open Web Platform
  • HTML5
  • Google Buzz
  • Google Cloud for Developers
  • Google Apps Marketplace
  • Google Storage

The speakers explained well to developers on the best practices and the right approach in programming such applications.

They also introduced the Google Technology Users Group (GTUG) which is a collaboration of developers to learn more about Google Technologies.

Many thanks to the speakers, organizers, volunteers and other individuals who supported the said event.

SouthEast Asia’s first WordCamp

Published by under Events

Finally I was able to attend the first WordCamp in the College of St. Benilde, De La Salle University in Taft Avenue. It was the first WordCamp in SouthEast Asia and it’s indeed a successful one.

I learned a lot from WordCamp on how to maximize the use of WordPress not only as a blogging software but as an all-rounder online management software, and also, was able to see in person, Matt Mullenweg, the guy who invented WordPress who owns the company, Automattic. He was able to show us a glimpse of the next version of WordPress (2.7), which will be released on November 2008.

Congratulations to the organizers and many thanks to the sponsors!
