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.

Adventure in the Middle of the Snake Pit: PyCon Philippines 2014

It was only recently I realized how lucky I am to have attended the two-day PyCon Philippines 2014, the Python community conference, at the De La Salle University, Manila.

The two-day conference gave me the opportunity to again meet or see some of the IT personalities I respect and highly regard in the industry like Edison Go Tan, Evan Dale Aromin, Zak Elep, and Alvin Edwald Chan and Brian Paul Samson, both were volunteers and organizers of the event.

It's also been fortunate of me to have met Jayr Anes, coincidentally also a graduate school student at Polytechnic University of the Philippines.
