here’s something to make any IT PINOY’s day. those in the information technology industry surely would relate to this video.“The Expert” is a funny sketch about an engineer, along with his boss and the clients, and how he is committed to achieve a-seem-to-be-impossible-and-vague-task.
an email scam has been recently reported targeting the PINOY Overseas Contract Workers (OFWs).
the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) advised everyone to ignore emails telling them they have qualified and may apply as a nurse or caregiver at the Canadian Virtual Hospice in Winnipeg, Canada.
the said email further added that applying for the job does not have hidden charges and that the employer will shoulder the airfare, work permit fee, and working visa (sounds interesting huh?). now the catch… the candidate is told to pay at a designated Western Union and/or LBC account, for the coaching and medical exam fees and to reserve a slot at the embassy for the coaching seminar.
its unnerving how some take advantage of people who are just trying to earn a better and honest living. please share this, be aware.

months after super typhoon yolanda (haiyan) devastated some parts of the Visayas Islands in the Philippines, see how the people there continued with their lives and still be able to dance to Pharell Williams’ Happy! 🙂
Being in IT for almost two decades now I am perhaps lucky to have witnessed the growth of this industry. More so, I am glad to see the “rebirth” of Java Scripting for front-end development in the recent years. But ask any front-end developer and one thing they dreaded most was testing these web pages and Java Scripts. PhantomJS – however is a game changer!
Google today recognizes via a doodle one of the pioneers in Information Technology, Grace Hopper.
Grace Brewster Murray worked on a device called the Automatic Sequence Controlled Calculator, which worked out flight trajectories for rockets and was later used by the Manhattan Project scientists to build the atomic bomb.
in the 50s, Hopper was able to convince government agencies to agree that programs should be written close to the English language (instead of machine codes – the 0’s and 1’s) thus Common Business Programming Language or COBOL was born. this later paved way for modern day computer languages. she was also the one who coined “debugging” for they found a moth in a relay which affected their operation (this can be found in the Smithsonian Museum).
known also as “Amazing Grace,” Hopper served as director of the US Navy Programming Languages Group in the Navy’s Office of Information Systems Planning and ultimately rose to the rank of rear admiral.
“The most important thing I’ve accomplished, other than building the compiler, is training young people. They come to me, you know, and say, ‘Do you think we can do this?’ I say, ‘Try it.’ And I back ’em up. They need that. I keep track of them as they get older and I stir ’em up at intervals so they don’t forget to take chances.”
she died in January 1992 and was buried with full military honors in Arlington National Cemetery. her work however lives up to today.. every time you withdraw cash from an ATM machine, it was her COBOL program you’re using 🙂
