I just came back from Philippine .NET User Group first general assembly. The officers where there and about 30 members attended the meeting. Our guest speaker was Mr. Warren Yu, and he demonstrated a simple ASP.NET 2.0 webpage using Visual Studio 2005. He\’s funny and he injected a lot of jokes in between his demo, so I thought it wasn\’t a demo at all. :P What\’s really funny was the explotion of the LCD projector\’s lense while he\’s in the middle of his presentation. It\’s my first time seeing that kind of demo. I pity Microsoft technicians because they just replaced the poor LCD\’s lense a day ago, and tonight it was busted again. And so, Mr. Warren Yu\’s presentation went on as if nothing had happened. It was a very casual presentation and I liked how he set a very friendly atmosphere. It was not really exciting, but it was not boring either.
Later, PhiNUG\’s president Mr. Punzalan showed some interesting plans about PhiNUG, and there\’s bunch of other activities to be planned after the official launching of Visual Studio 2005, SQL Server 2005 and BizTalk Server 2005. I was glad Jackie Fiesta was there. He\’s the publication officer and he knows the other officers so I was able to mingle more since I already know the guy (he\’s my senior). I also approached Mr. John Patrick Oliveros in order to confirm his attendance for our symposium for tomorrow. He also gave me 3 big \”Ready to Launch\” posters to showoff during the event tomorrow. :)
