Offline Web Applications on App Engine and Django

What: Offline Web Applications on App Engine and Django
When: 7pm - 8:20pm June 8, 2011

Where: 38th Floor 8 Shenton Way Bldg. Singapore

Dan Delima - "App Engine development has gotten better over the past year with other groups taking the effort making django work without much modifications on it.  I have taken personal interest in building offline applications and have tried isolating problems and solutions on making web applications work with or without internet access.  Applies to mobile web applications too."

GTUG Zamboanga's Chrome Extension Development, Android Workshop, and MapUp for Philippine Red Cross

It was a busy May 2011 for GTUG Zamboanga Chapter. We had three events:

Chrome Extension Development
Held at the CS Research Lab in ADZU last May 6, 2011 from 2PM to 5PM, I introduced to the group the basics of creating Chrome Extension and how to publish and monetize it.

Android Development Workshop
This is actually the 2nd batch of the workshop. This was held at the Advanced ComLab in ADZU. Around 20 Android Developer enthusiasts attended the event last May 21, 2011 around 1PM-5PM. The topics discussed are the following: Android Architecture, Basics of Android Development, and how to Publish Apps in the Android Market.

MapUp for Philippine Red Cross
In partnership with Philippine Red Cross, the GTUG Zamboanga Chapter had their MapUP last May 23, 2011 at the E-Learning Center, Zamboanga City. Around 20 Google MapMaker volunteers converged to help map Zamboanga Peninsula and other nearby provinces like Basilan and Tawi-Tawi.

Thanks to all who attended the events, volunteers and venue sponsors.
