Greenwich to host Cebu Foursquare Day 2013

2013/04/14

Last year, Cebu City celebrated Foursquare Day with Bo’s Coffee. This year, we celebrate with GREENWICH, a popular pizza chain in the Philippines.

While Foursquare Day is celebrated every April 16, we’re doing this on April 17, so that we can celebrate together with the other side of the world. After all, this is an American GLOBAL thing.

We will be handing out OFFICIAL 4sqDay2013 water bottles, thanks to Foursquare. We will also be giving out Foursquare tip stickers from last year’s Meetup.  And if you’re feeling hungry, there’s also a slice of GREENWICH for the first 50 to check-in to their venue.

2. Like our Foursquare Cebu page.
3. Show up at Greenwich, Ayala Center Cebu on April 17 (Wed) 8-9PM.

NOTE: While the Meetup is on April 17 (Wed), the one-day-only Foursquare Day 2013 badge can only be unlocked on April 16 (Tue). So, make sure to check-in on April 16!

SPECIAL THANKS to Foursquare for the freebies, Greenwich for hosting the Cebu 4sqDay 2013, and to @karissayu and @jerminix for co-organizing this Meetup!

Cebu StackOverflow Meetup on May 26 (Sat)

2012/05/20

Last 28 April 2012 (Sat), StackExchange members around the world celebrated the 2nd Annual StackOverflow Meetup Day. So where were the Hackers, Programmers, Designers, other Tech folks of Cebu, Philippines? Busy with preparations [meetups, trainings, etc] for Startup Weekend Cebu of course — with WaitKnowMore going home first place last May 13 (Sun)! Read the SunStar link for more details.

For this delayed Cebu StackOverflow Meetup, we will be doing a series tech talks with 6 speakers. If you have been to Startup Weekend Cebu last May 11 (Fri) – May 13 (Sun), most of their faces will be familiar to you! They have been there either as an organizer, a mentor, a participant, or goodness.. a winner! So, who will be speaking? These GEEKS:

  1. Albert Padin (SpellDial.com)
    Google AppEngine and its SO Support Community
  2. Carlos Tapang (Centerus, Inc)
    Why Copy-Paste is Very Harmful to Your Code
  3. Greg Montaño (Accenture)
    Version Control and Continuous Integration

  6. Jeremie Lim (Morphlabs)
    Experiences, Interfaces and the Other Fluff That Matters

These guys have 20-30 minutes each to bore AMAZE! you with their talks. AND, here’s where we’ll be DIFFERENT: During the Q&A portion of their talks (part of the 30 mins), EVERYONE is FREE to ASK and ANSWER. If you didn’t get one of the keywords in the last sentence, I repeat: ANSWER. In true StackOverflow sense, we ENCOURAGE open collaboration and sharing of ideas.
