Engels started playing with Linux® in 1991 and obtained his Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE), Red Hat Certified Instructor (RHCI), and Red Hat Certified Examiner (RHCX) certifications in 2002. He is in charge of Bluepoint's Total Linux®, Linux Kernel Internals®, Perl & Python Programming, and Extreme PHP curriculum and instruction development.

Richard Keech, RHCE, RHCX conducted my RHCE, RHCI, and RHCX training & certification in his capacity as Red Hat Asia-Pacific's Chief Instructor. Before we parted ways, he congratulated me for becoming the first Filipino RHCX. I told him that I was trained by the best.

Digital Pinay 2005

When Magie forwarded me a copy of the Digital Pinay 2005 "application form" she received yesterday, we thought it was another e-mail joke. Why?

1. Intelligence counts for only 40% of the candidate's score. 40%? In an IT-related contest? Haha!

2. Height, weight, bust, waist, and hip measurements are required. What do these have to do with a woman's competence in IT?

Unfortunately, the contest is seriously real, and IMHO not funny at all. Sacha Chua and Dominique Cimafranca, among others, immediately aired their thoughts about this in their respective blogs. At the risk of being called a pseudo-activist, I believe that they have articulated the sentiments of most IT professionals - all genders included.
