Ozamiz Android Workshops

I was invited to the 7th ICT Youth Convention in La Salle University (LSU) Ozamiz. This time, I had two whole-day workshops. The convention was composed of three days (February 22-24). The first day was mostly talks while the other two were workshops.

I arrived early in the morning of February 23. My first workshop is an Android App Development Workshop. Instead of the usual letting the participants work on the workshop materials after the intro talk, I demonstrated how to code one by one and ask them to do the same on their machines.

On my second day, I facilitated an Android Game Development Workshop using Love 2D and Lua. We then exported their games to installable APKs after the activities.

Here are some photos of the event:

UMAK Android Workshop

I was invited to University of Makati to talk about Android apps development on the afternoon of February 18. It was supposed to be an Android Workshop but due to certain factors, I just talked about the basics and did some live demos. Here is the slides I used in my talk:



Here are some photos during the event:




This event officially starts my Android talks, workshops, and events for the year. Looking forward to learning more and sharing more.

Condura Skyway Marathon 2016

I ran 10k in Condura Skyway Marathon 2016 last weekend. The official results for my run are 01:25:24 (Chip Time) and 01:30:53 (Gun Time). Runtastic says that I ran 10.14 km in 1:26:48.

The run was okay until it started to rain. There were also too many runners in the Skway, especially during the last 3k where the traffic was heavy it is hard to walk. There were also a lot of people who stop in the middle of the road to take selfies and pictures. Some runners also throw paper cups on the road even if the trash bins are just a few steps away from them.

This was my third 10k in Condura Skyway Marathon. Next year, I am hoping I can run in the 21k category.
