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.

Nooku Code Jam Manila
Monday, Sep 20, 2010, 8:09 PM

Bluepoint was happy to sponsor Nooku Code Jam Manila, which was held today at the University of the Philippines Information Technology Training Center (UPITTC) in Diliman, Quezon City.

Nooku Code Jams are unconference style events that focus mostly on developing with the Nooku Framework. Code Jams are born from the desire for people to share and learn in an open environment. It is an intense event with discussions, hacking and interaction from developers who are the main actors of the event.

The code jam was facilitated by Johan Janssens, chief architect of Joomla 1.5 and the founder and lead architect of Nooku. Nooku is considered by many as the natural evolution of the Joomla Framework.
