Bluepoint is a non-profit Open Source education and development center. It is the first organization in the Philippines to focus on Linux and Open Source training.
I enrolled in Bluepoint's Total Linux course in June of 2001. Aside from learning Linux through a well-designed course, I also made a lot of new friends - sharing our enthusiasm for Linux, as well as other aspects of life. But what stood out in my mind, were the people behind Bluepoint: Magie Antonio, Engels Antonio, and Eddie Salonga. Their passion and dedication to making world-class Linux training accessible to under-privileged Filipino students is inspiring and infectious. Most of the alumni I have met (including myself), have volunteered to either train, fund, or help organize Bluepoint's free training seminars to advocate the use of Open Source technology all over the Philippines.

The Philippine Linux community united today to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Linux operating system. Linux10, a series of free lectures about Linux and Linux-related stuff organized by PLUG as part of a worldwide celebration, was held at the Asia Pacific College in Makati City. The event was made possible through the support of ACENT, APC, Bluepoint, IBM, Progressive Ideas, PSSI, Q-Linux, QSR, Sun Microsystems, and SuSE.
