The Week in a Post (10/30-11/06)


Another week has passed and it has been another busy one I had not posted anything in this blog. I wanted to update it at least once a week but since I was not able to do so, I am making another "week-in-a-post." This would be the second time I'm doing this, after my blog post for September 30 to October 06. I also noticed that during the last week of the month I have been busy making me unable to update this blog (Or was it just a coincidence?).

I have started with a personal project, CvSEA (CvSU Student Election App). It is an open source app for student elections in CvSU (Cavite State University). It is based from Halalan, the open source voting system being developed and maintained by the UP Linux Users' Group (UnPLUG). I just started the project even if the talks for it with CvSU Naic Campus is still to be formalized. It only has the initial commit for now but development will be continued in the coming days. The project is also hosted in Google Code.

Last November 3, I attended the meetup of the Association of Filipino Java Developers (PinoyJUG) at the G2ix TechBar. The topics discussed were "Common Pitfalls Experienced in Java" by Julz Cutaran and "Dive Into Agile: What Your Scrum Master Didn't Tell You" by Mykol Mallete. This, I think, would be the last meetup of the group this year. I am looking forward to attend more of PinoyJUG's events and meetups next year.

Speaking of user groups, I also had some time updating the list of events and meetups of Google Technology User Group (GTUG) Philippines in its Google Sites page, and in the GTUGs.org chapter page.

Aside from all of these, most of the things that kept me busy is work-related. That's it for now. I need to rest and relax.
