DevCon PH 2015

I’ve been wanting to attend conferences for developers and on November 13-14 the biggest developers in the Philipines held its second summit and it’s a plane ride away from home—I was on high again.

What I’ve learned from the conference (aside from handshaking and saying to speakers that they did a good job):

  • thechangelog.com
  • Prepare business cards (lotsa!)
  • Constantly talk your ideas
  • Why open source prevails? Because human is kind by nature; we’d rather contribute for the goodness than making the cause of someone’s downfall.
  • “Great support, great communication that translates your knowledge to the clients.”
  • Your dorm mate might be one of the speakers!
  • Docker!
  • Mantra in development: “Immutability, decomposability, distributed, continuous”

It was a nice experience overall despite that…
