As a member of the Association of Filipino Java Developers(PinoyJUG), I had received an e-mail and a Facebook event invitation on a PinoyJUG activity on October 27, 2009 from 7 to 9 in the evening. I decided to participate in the said activity.
There were three good topics discussed. Melvin Vivas provided an overview of Google App Engine for Java and showed a demonstration of an app using Eclipse and Google App Engine. Deng Ching explained Maven and Releasing Projects using it. Finally, Franz See discussed Automated Testing in Java and testing techniques like Test-First Development, Test-Last Development, and Test-Driven Design.
That night was wonderful. I had gained more knowledge and learned new things in just a small amount of time.
The PinoyJUG meetup was held at the TechBar of G2iX on the fifth floor of Orient Square Building (at F. Ortigas Jr. formerly Emerald Ave., Ortigas Center).
