The Week in a Post (09/30-10/06)


Another week has passed. And as expected, I have been busy due to some factors I have been expecting. However, I do not want to keep this blog unattended. So, I planned to do weekly posts summarizing what happened in that seven days. This is the first post, covering September 30 to October 6, 2010.

Last September 30, I attended a Google Chrome event at Peoplen's Palace (Greenbelt 3). I didn't realized what the event was until I reached the venue. The place, the food and the drinks are all Google-themed. Much of what was said about Chrome were already familiar to me. What's new to me are the Google Chrome Extensions and Google Chrome Themes that were made by Filipinos.

My first Facebook app, Post This, attracted a few new users this week. Maybe it was because I had successfully added it in the Facebook Apps Gallery. I also got my first official feedback ("Looks cool.") this day. Well, I never really have any goals (like having a certain number of users) for this app. It was just a personal project I am doing while studying the APIs of Facebook, Twitter and other sites. I feel happy that there are persons who try and use the app without me asking them to do so. (This excludes some few times when I ask a friend for feedback after she used the app and found some bugs/errors.) If they find the app useful, they can use it and if they don't like it, they can remove the app. I would also welcome feedback and suggestions.

I also have started in the new work assignment (new team, new project, new workplace). As of now, I still have a lot to learn and I am hoping to do it faster to be an asset to the team. Some other things that I did this week are creating an account in Delicious, and clarifying some matters about the open source project which I am about to make a customized implementation, hopefully.
