Google DevFest Manila 2010

Yesterday hundreds of developers converged at the UP-Ayala Technohub for the Manila leg of Google's DevFest.  This event wouldn't have been successful without the help of so many people and I'd like to personally thank them here in this post:

The Googlers: Christine, Patrick, Jeremy, Dan, Timothy, Bob, David and Stephanie for coming over to discuss awesome Google technologies (Chrome/HTML5, App Engine, Social APIs, Maps APIs and Apps). Please, please, please come back!!!

Ayala TBI, Ayala Foundation and Ayala Land: Rhia and Michi for moving heaven and earth to host the DevFest at the UP Ayala Technohub. Thank you also to the maintenance staff of UP-Ayala Technohub, hope you guys enjoyed all the take home food.

The Philippine Google Technology Users Group especially the managers Pogz, Brian and Jomar who worked out the details for registration and getting volunteers.

The UP Linux Users Group (thanks Mikko!) for volunteering again to help out in DevFest 2010. These students were just froshies back in DevFest 2008. They've also been very supportive with other local projects.

Special thank you also goes to Leslie and her students (from De La Salle University) for helping out with the Krispy Kreme doughnuts, Brian's angels (for the coffee and cups, evaluation forms etc.), and the hubby, Jay, for being my personal angel (alam mo na yun!).

And special thank you for the support: Krispy Kreme (for the original glazed doughnuts) and Aqua Health Guadalupe (Arpee, you are the best!). And thank you Jon and Joy for the great service for the food and shirts.

DevFest Manila was brought to you by Google, Philippines - Google Technology Users Group and Ayala TBI.
