First Talk: Chrome Extensions

Last July 20, Google Technology User Groups Philippines (GTUGPH) held its meetup at the CodeFlux office (RCI Building, 105 Rada Street, Legaspi Village, Makati City). The first topic was HTML 5 which was presented by Brian Tan Seng and his teammates from 98 Labs, Inc. I was the second speaker and I presented Introduction to Google Chrome Extensions Development. Paolo Melendres also talk about KKB, an Android app from CodeFlux.
I talked about Google Chrome Extensions and also demonstrated the GTUG Philippines Chrome Extension. Now at Version 1.5, the extension gives users updates in the group blog, mailing list, calendar of activities, as well as links and the latest tweets.
Below is the presentation I used during my talk:

You can also view the slides here. The event was also streamed live using UStream. here is a recorded video of my talk (I still haven't watched it yet).

I met fellow members of the group, friends, and former officemates. It was also my first time to give a talk so I was a little bit nervous. My talk and the event turned out to be a success. I also received a lot of positive, inspirational and motivational comments about me and the talk. I would like to thank my officemates for the support, especially Celine for giving me encouragement and inspiration. I am hoping I can have more talks in the future.
