Last talk for the year (barring a possible surprise talk at Code Retreat): a talk about current trends in web technologies at DevCon UPHSD. This time it’s a 20 minute talk that I had to drag out to 40+ minutes to cover for the missing speakers. Good thing I wasn’t pressured to deliver it in English.
So yeah, we had 2 missing speakers, leaving Alvin and I to handle everything.
But surprisingly, this DevCon event was far better than the one in DLSU (read: a more prestigious university) mainly because the students were really interested in what the two of us have to say. Sure, our talks may have been boring for most of the audience, but by the time we left the campus, we’ve fielded over a dozen questions, mostly from students who approached us after the event ended.
In comparison, AFAIK, only one student asked a question in DLSU.
Pride? Apathy? I really don’t know.
Anyway, here’s my talk and the slides.
