I just recently I became a member of the PSIA Tech Council… The company I’m working for is a member of PSIA which makes up 90% of the country’s software sector promoting the growth and global competitiveness of the Philippine software industry, also an active partner of the government and academe in implementing programs that benefit the industry.
The PSIA, PSIA Tech Council, together with the Awesome and Cool sponsors will be having the Luzon leg of DEVCON here in Manila!

It features three main elements which has successful formats used in international technology gatherings:

BTW, the program mentioned the words Pizza and Beer (twice). That would be cool ;) See you there!
We were invited by Asia Pacific College to host a DEVCON on their College Week. I did a Lightning Talk (10-15mins presentation) about Virtualization giving the students a historical background (mainframe days) and moving forward to x86 architecture (xen,kvm,etc.). I also explained to them the comparison of different methods to do x86 Virtualization. These are very useful info when they start to apply or try these technologies on the real world. Overall the event was great :) and we had a very interesting Q&A/discussion about career matters.
