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.
