I have been a TechTalker at TechTalks.ph since months ago and just met the founder, Ms. Tins last month. Ever since then, I have been inspired with the development of the local tech community here in Cebu.
The main goal of TechTalks is to encourage Tech entrepreneurs and gauge and make sure that Cebu has capability of being the Silicon Valley of the Philippines.
This month of July 2011 is when lots of Information Technology events in Cebu are taking place. Therefore, I am listing some events here that you might be interested in.
Check which event you are most interested in below and please do attend. Slots are limited so reserve a seat now.
