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.

Software Freedom Day 2006
Saturday, Sep 16, 2006, 2:30 PM

Maj and I represented Bluepoint in today's Software Freedom Day celebration at the University of the Philippines in Diliman. The College of Engineering building hasn't changed much since we were students there, except that now virtually all the gates were locked! We spent a great deal of time walking around the building with another attendee, looking for what turned out to be the only entrance to the venue. We later found out that former UP President Dr. Francisco Nemenzo also got lost on his way to the event. In any case, it was great to see Dominique Cimafranca, Danny Escasa, Chin Wong, and Paolo Falcone, among others. We were also able to touch base with Prof. Medel Aligan from Bicol University and Al Alegre of FMA.

I delivered the 8-minute Bluepoint+FOSS talk that John Michael Bitanga of UnPLUG asked me to prepare in roughly half the time due to several changes in the programme - Dr. Nemenzo was the last speaker for the morning and we didn't want to delay him from his other appointments.

Turnout for the event was pretty good, especially since the organizers were quite pressed for time. Thanks and congratulations to everyone who made SFD2006 possible!
