WHAT A GREAT & UNIQUE EVENT I’VE EVER ATTENDED IN MY WHOLE LIFE!
What is SFD?
Software Freedom Day (SFD) is a worldwide celebration of Free and Open Source Software (FOSS)
Our team united and educated all the students in University of Baguio about Free Software and we also introduced the only first Filipino Linux Distro Software, the KahelOS. The program was started by Mr. Lawrence Libo-on regarding the FOSS and what’s the purpose of it in IT Industry and in our lives, followed by Sir Jasper Tomas about Video Tutorial Creation using FOSS and some features of KahelOS, he also shared his experience in making program in his early age. The third topic was shared by Engr. Rhoane Tanada & Dennis Diola about GeoServer: Open Source Geospatial Server, an open-source server written in Java - allows users to share and edit geospatial data. They showed us how the GeoServer works and what are the purposes of it in industry to make our lives easier to manage all the geospatial data. The next discussion was Asterisk by Sir Macoy Mejia, an Open Source Telephony Project that transforms a computer into a communication server. This topic was superb because Asterisk handles most of simultaneous calls in all call center companies and he also showed us how it works by using his tablet. Followed by Allen Caeg regarding Mobile Development, it’s a short sharing knowledge but I’ve learned some lessons from him. And the last speaker was Sir Meric Mara, he discussed about MariaDB, a database replacement by MySql. He shared his experience using MariaDB and what are the differences and similarities of it to other database.
All in all the end result of the event was ‘EPIC’! Many students attended our event and they learned and gained knowledge, including us, from our speakers. Oh I almost forgot! I also shared my experience about Open Source in front of UB students XD haha.
Waaa~~! I don’t have picture with Sir Lawrence Libo-on Y____Y
but wait I think I have
During two nights and two days in Baguio I have a lot of experience that I will carry and treasure forever and most of all I will never ever forget the laughs, jokes, experiences & knowledges we’ve shared. As an intern in 8Layer Technologies, Inc. I am so very grateful, thankful and fortunate to be part of this community because I have met such great and wonderful people in IT Industry who freely contribute their knowledge without just to feed our thirsty mind in knowledge.
We had a great time roaming around in Baguio City before going back to Manila. This was one of the most memorable experiences as an intern and a college student in my life. The best experience I will never ever forget :)
