Startup Asia Singapore 2012
We joined Startup Asia Singapore. It’s my first time out of the country alone. Well, technically, I wasn’t really alone. I was with my partner, Nicole, and I loved every bit of it. In fact, I’m still loving it here! If I were to pick one thing that I love the most about Singapore, it would be the fact that despite them being very technologically advanced, the air is very...

Google AppEngine Workshop 1 - the Aftermath

Many thanks to Exist who lent us the venue, and Ida Ortiz who made this happen! The participants! Most were graduating...

Google AppEngine Workshop
Yesterday, I suddenly (trust me. It was sudden) felt the urge to hold a workshop for Google AppEngine here in my beloved hometown - Cebu City. I’ve been playing around and built apps on the GAE (Google AppEngine) platform for the past three years, and yet I can only count with my fingers the number of other developers that are familiar with GAE. Well, aside from the fact that I’m...

I remember when I was about 12 years old, and I was hanging out with my siblings and some of my friends on the rooftop of our house, my siblings noticed a truck pass by the rough road beside our...
