I'll be Speaking at Y4IT 2008
For the second straight year, I'll be speaking at the Philippine Youth Congress in Information Technology or simply, Y4IT. This year's series of talks will be held at its original home-- the University of the Philippines in Diliman, Quezon City from September 2-5, 2008.
Like the previous years, Y4IT will be focusing on contemporary and new technology that today's youth will find useful and beneficial in their future careers. In my talk last year, the title of my talk was "Web 2.0 and You," where, to my surprise, I introduced Web 2.0 to over 1,500 college and high school students. This year, I'm shifting my attention to the entertainment aspect of the Web. I thought of a catchy title and what I came up with was "The Internet's Next Big Star-- You!" I'm quite excited about it because I'll be talking about a topic that combines two of my favorite subjects: The Web and entertainment.
Other topics for the multi-day event include eLearning 2.0, Blogging, CGI in Film Animation, Social Networking, Blu-Ray Technology, IT Certifications, Careers in Embedded Systems, Podcasting, PhilNITS as a National IT Standard, What Employers Look for in IT Graduates, Outsourcing & Offshoring, Ruby on Rails.
If you have the time, drop by UP Diliman in the first week of September. :)
