AIM to Host WordCamp Philippines 2009
The Asian Institute of Management will be hosting the 2009 edition of WordCamp Philippines. Last year, I spoke about Web Standards at the event where the special guest was none other than Matt Mullenweg, the creator of WordPress. This year's event will have folks from Automattic and Mozilla to speak about developments on Wordpress and Firefox respectively.
Here's the program for tomorrow's WordCamp Philippines 2009:
- 8:00am - Registration

I helped in arranging the event to be held in AIM, which was a great venue last July for the Form Function & Class Web Design Conference. At this rate, AIM can be considered as one of the hubs for major web & social media community events here in the Philippines.
