Agrikathon: The Agriculture-Oriented Hackathon of Northern Luzon

EDGEKIT Computer Systems is very proud to sponsor the upcoming Agri Hackathon, or more endearingly called Agrikathon since it's conception early May this year, to be held at PhilRice in Nueva Ecija from 29th to 30th of August this year. This was organized by PhilRice with the major participation of Mobility or Mobile IT for Youth.


Based on the sold out tickets, this is already a success. On our part, this is more of a sequel to the Bigas2Hack event we attended last year. We sincerely will miss Smart Communication's absence on this event, the presence of Microsoft Philippines and Eqela would be a very welcome co-sponsors of the event.

Check out the rules of the hackathon here and hope to see you all there.

Jimini the Ticket Managing and Monitoring System

We have again been on blog hiatus like in numerous times for the past few years. The focus recently, or excuse if you will, is a mobile-centric ticket managing and monitoring system we named Jimini.

It's still in early stages of development as of this writing and currently can be found in the cloud. This is currently focused on the user interface and experience design first, with concern for quick access to creating tickets, that is to author issue reports.

We plan to make a product around this project and if you want to help make this more suitable to your needs or should you be interested to avail of this service, please contact us.

Book Review of Extending Bootstrap

Having designed and developed web applications for over a decade, I once thought jQuery Mobile is the best there is, I even used it in my early professional and hackathon projects. Knowing Bootstrap 3 now, I feel guilty of high treason for those projects that look and feel the same, even when you apply themes on them.

When your web design or development project needs a responsive, mobile-first design, Bootstrap 3 fits the bill almost perfectly. Why almost? The usual complaint with Bootstrap is that the web pages created practically look like any other websites made with it.

Beyond Open Source: The Latest on Microsoft and Apple

To further boost the competitive edge,  after Microsoft outsourced their CEO post to India, closed-door discussions are on the way to purchase Red Hat and finally roll-out the long overdue and much ballyhooed vaporware codenamed Microsoft Linux.

Meanwhile at Apple, in a bold move to dispose old Intel-based Macs in preparation for the release of A7-based systems across the board, Steve Wozniak performs cameo role as the delivery boy.
