Cagayan de Oro is now “geared up”!
The Gear Up: Cagayan de Oro initiated by the Philippine Windows Users Group was a success. A lot of IT professionals had attended this event from as far as Camiguin, Malaybalay and Valencia Bukidnon. There was also a representative of Microsoft straight from Singapore who came, she is Maria Green, a technology evangelist.
The PHIWUG guys were excited to give away freebies, and I’m talking about Windows Vista Ultimate Edition that is actually worth Php26k. One hell of a freebie huh?!…Aside from that, they gave away Microsoft jackets as well, Microsoft books for Windows and would you believe theres a Microsoft personal care kit(Microsoft Powerpoint shampoo, Microsoft Word body wash..yada yada…weird I know…anyways, congratulations to those who got the freebies…)
Had also the chance to bond with one of the PHIWUG guys, Keen Robante, a very friendly dude and is originally from Mindanao. We played DOTA early in the morning and showed what us, Kagayanons, got when it comes to this kind of game.
All in all, we had a blast. The event was successful although experienced a couple of minor problems, but we all pulled it right at the end. We would like to thank all who participated on this event and don’t forget to sign up online to officially become a member of PHIWUG. We plan to kicked out another event on April next year, so watch out for that.
