Joomla! Day Philippines


Joomla! Day Philippines is on its way!

Mark June 14, 2008 on your calendar. It's the 1st ever Joomla! Day in the Philippines.

The Philippines is set to witness the next biggest event for the month of June besides Independence Day. On June 14, 2008, Filipino webmasters and amateurs alike will converge at the Engineering Library and Computer Science Building, Velaquez Street, UP Campus, Diliman, Quezon City to liberate not just Filipinos but every single individual in cyberspace. The event is dubbed as Joomla! Day Philippines.

Since knowledge in computer technology assures individual a competitive edge in the 21st century, Joomla! Day Philippines is indeed as remarkable event for Filipinos as Independence Day (June 12). Joomla! is an award-winning free open source content management system (CMS) enabling professionals and amateurs to build and administer feature-rich, powerful web sites without having to have an extensive knowledge of web programming languages. It is designed to power simple personal homepages as well as complex corporate web applications.

Come June 14, 2008, Filipinos online will once again express its commitment to the free software movement with the holding of the first-ever Joomla! Day Philippines – a great opportunity to learn and network with other Joomla! users and developers in the country. The conference will be attended by representatives from the Joomla! Core Team and Working Group, representatives from non-governmental organizations, local government units, and the business sector. Joomla! Day Philippines is another good reason to celebrate freedom after Philippine Independence Day. Don't remove the Philippine flags just yet until June 14.

Personally, I will not be able to go. There's just no budget and time for this right now. But if I was to go, I think this will really be a great opportunity.

Attending such event is not just having an additional credentials to your profile but to witness and being involved in such a biggest historical event on Joomla! community.

Hopefully they will conduct an event not only on one part of the country but also on other parts of the Philippines to spread the technology on using Open Source specially on IT schools and professionals as part of Education and to heighten the technology competitiveness.

Sana may local organizers din sa mga local regions natin, hopefully..

Yes, open source should be promoted in a country like ours. There is an open source summit coming up which I wrote about here.
