GTUG Fil SG 2nd Meetup

The 2nd GTUG Fil SG meetup was held at Starbucks, 8 Shenton Way, the attendees were five GTUG Fil SG members and Aileen Apollo of Google. The meet up turned out to be a fun and productive meeting, Nikki 'volunteered' to be the first resource person for Google AppEngine (well actually we volunteered him). He will be sharing to the group his expertise in GAE and Carl will be handling the logistics of the venue. Hoping to see the other members to be more active and participate with the group's activities. On the next meetup I’ll be giving away Google stickers and keychains, so see you guys on the next meetup!

Google I/O Extended Manila

Organizing Google I/O Extended Manila was really tricky since the keynote was at midnight in our timezone. We managed to bring together a small group of developers from Manila and Los Banos to watch the keynote and the first Android talk. Our gracious host was University of the Philippines College of Computer Science to Professor Rom Feria.

Up next: Manila Mapping Party together with the Philippine Red Cross. Sign-up now and get a rare Google Mapmaker-Philippine Red Cross shirt when you attend! Details and sign-up can be found here.
