Pinoy Jokes Chrome Extension

After publishing my Pinoy Jokes Android App on Google Play, I worked on creating an extension for Google Chrome. It took a while for me to come up with the initial version but now the Pinoy Jokes Chrome Extension is now available on the Google Chrome Web Store. I plan to update this as I update the Android App.

If you still haven't installed the Android app, download it now on Google Play.

ANC Alerts Interview

Last October 31, GDG Philippines and Globe Labs representatives were invited by ANC Alerts for an interview about the upcoming DevFests in Bacolod and Cebu. GlobeLabs is a sponsor of both events. Globe Labs Developer Relations Manager Anne Michelle Santos and I went to the interview because I was the only community manager of GDG Philippines who is available that time.

Here is the video of our interview. The name in the display is wrong though:



It was my first time to be interviewed and it was on a live show. I was so nervous!
