Note: Sorry for the late post, I’ve been busy with stuff and events :3
After a whole day of listening to different speakers talking about various technologies and topics, the Microsoft In-VIRT-Edu2012 finally ended. Yes, VIRT as in virtual. From morning til past 4 pm, I was sitting in front of my PC and signing onto virtual conference rooms every after ~2 hours.
Not your typical seminar, the first Microsoft In-VIRT-Edu2012 happened on May 11, 2012, with speakers coming from different parts of the world. Using their newest software Microsoft Lync, which will be the replacement for the current enterprise software Office Communicator, people from all over the Philippines were able to attend the same event without the location constraints (one of the problems of event goers, aside from schedule conflict). In the comfort of your own homes, whether you just woke up or it’s late in the evening, you will be able to say ‘Present!’.
But the fun doesn’t stop there. Participants in Manila were able to attend the after party held in Hard Rock Cafe, Makati City. An estimate of 25 people were able to come with the main objective of grabbing the free jacket *insert evil smile here*
Ever since I stepped into college, I noticed there were only a few female students studying Computer Science, Information Technology, and all Engineering courses in my university. In my class, a third of it is composed of girls. There are some blocks that have less than 5.
Given that computer-related courses is in the top three choices of most students who enter college, the numbers are small, as is the number of female instructors.
I’m pretty sure everyone has heard about Etsy, the famous online marketplace for handmade and vintage goods, is sponsoring ten grants worth $5,000 each for ten lucky females who need financial support to participate in the summerlong program of Hacker School.
To take away the boredom, given I have things to do on my list, I read news articles on the web. That or I read a book or an actual newspaper. It’s nice to be updated and entertained by the latest news, gadgets or discoveries.
I’ll share with you today the articles that caught my eye from my most visited sites (in no particular order).
