Learn how to leverage the hottest Open Source technologies to help reduce costs, minimize vendor lock-in, and grow your business in this special Bluepoint 7th anniversary event.
While open to the general public, this event will be especially appealing to management - CIOs, CTOs, project managers and others in the decision-making chain - who need to understand the considerations behind business streamlining with Open Source technologies.
Proceeds will help fund the Teachers Using Linux to Augment the Youth (TULAY) project for the following beneficiaries:
TULAY Batch 1 Phase 2 Free Linux and Open Source Training of Public High School Teachers
TULAY Batch 2 Phase 1 Free Linux and Open Source Training of Teachers for the Disabled
Due to the indifference of Crowne Plaza Hotel management, the conference will instead be held at the Richmonde Hotel, Ortigas Center from 8:30 AM to 7:00 PM.

Invocation Sen. Jovito Salonga Trustee Emeritus, Bluepoint Foundation
We thank You, O Lord, for the opportunity to come to You in this morning hour, believing that if we seek You and your Kingdom of righteousness, first and above all, other things will be added unto us.
You have created and made all things that are dear to us - even the work of our hands and our minds. But forbid it, Lord, that we should fall in love with things, that our roots become too firmly attached to this earth. Give us the courage and the wisdom to simplify our lives.
Forgive us for the pride and the presumption with which we manage our affairs, as though we do not need You, only to realize that when we feel exhausted and tired and helpless, we need You more than ever.
We in Bluepoint have been here for seven years. We pause today to consider what we have achieved from year to year - in terms of providing training, holding educational seminars in various colleges and universities, introducing Linux and Open Source training to schools, government institutions and the business sector.
We bring to You, the source of all goodness, power, and wisdom the memories of whatever we have done in Bluepoint. Teach us to be ever humble in Your presence. Help these relatively young people to know that serving others in the spirit of love is more important than all the things money can buy. Help us all, O God to live and not merely to exist, that we may have joy in our work. In the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, who alone can give us hope and faith and love that lend meaning and purpose to our lives. Amen.

Trixbox Practical Open Source Voice-Over-IP William Yu Instructor, Ateneo de Manila University
Abstract This presentation attempts to review some basic VoIP concepts and the available open source VoIP software package in the market. We will then proceed to identify the most commonly sought after features in a VoIP system and identify which components are necessary. After which, a basic VoIP system complete with the features we have identified will be configured using the Trixbox distribution.

Enterprise Databases with PostgreSQL Ryan Baclit Instructor, Bluepoint Institute
Abstract There are many enterprise-grade databases available in the market, but IT managers tend to select only from commercial offerings. They fail to see that open source databases are also enterprise-ready, largely due to the marketing muscle of commercial vendors. This seminar will show that open source enterprise relational database management systems can be at par with commercial products, featuring the most advanced open source RDBMS: PostgreSQL.
Target Audience People looking for an open source enterprise-grade RDBMS as an alternative to commercial and proprietary solutions.
Objectives At the end of this seminar, participants will be able to appreciate the availability of PostgreSQL. They will be able to install and configure PostgreSQL and do basic replication through Slony-I.
Outline Introduction to PostgreSQL PostgreSQL Installation on Linux PostgreSQL Configuration PostgreSQL CLI Tools PostgreSQL GUI Frontends Programming APIs Proper PostgreSQL Maintenance Fundamental Database Level Security Measures Query Optimization Tricks High Availability Schemes for PostgreSQL Slony-I Replication
Large-Scale PHP Implementation Vip Malixi Senior Instructor, Bluepoint Institute
Abstract Large-scale PHP implementation requires certain tools and methodologies not usually needed for smaller scale operations, e.g., template engines, server optimization, OOP, etc. The key is to know when to use these tools and methodologies. A common myth is assuming that at the Enterprise level they are required by default - when in fact doing so may actually be detrimental or of very little value. This lecture describes these tools and methodologies are and the circumstances in which they would be applicable and useful.
Target Audience System Administrators and Designers IT and MIS Managers PHP Programmers
Objectives At the end of this seminar, participants will be able to be aware of what large-scale implementation PHP tools and methodologies are available and what circumstances they would be applicable.
Outline Introduction: What is "Large-Scale PHP Implementation" Tools and Methodologies for Use in Large-Scale Implementation: Object-Oriented PHP Tools and Methodologies for Use in Large-Scale Implementation: Template Engines Tools and Methodologies for Use in Large-Scale Implementation: PHP/Server Optimization
Xen Enterprise Grade Virtualization Engels Antonio Chief Instructor, Bluepoint Institute
Abstract Modern computers are sufficiently powerful to use virtualization - the illusion of many smaller virtual machines, each running a separate operating system instance. This allows the enterprise to maximize hardware investments through virtualization versus additional equipment acquisition.
Target Audience System Administrators Network Engineers Infrastructure and Datacenter Architects IT and MIS managers
Objectives At the end of this seminar, participants will be able to understand virtual architecture and deploy Xen for enterprise grade virtualization.
