On March 28, 2012, more than 50 4th Year Computer Engineering Students from the Queen City of the South invaded the 8layer Orange Headquarters (8OHQ) as part of their Seminar and Field Trip subject.
They are the enthusiastic and future IT practitioners and professionals from the University of San Carlos, Cebu City. This was the same time that most of us were just coming back from the Intel Negosyantech Event (Legaspi Leg) so it was Dondi and Jasper’s turn to walk them through KahelOS for these students to have a hands on experience with Linux and Open Source.
Part of their objective was to have a feel and sense of how an Open Source IT Company runs and operates and basically what are the services that 8layer offers.
The Cebuanos came at around 10:30 in the morning, toured the office, listened and participated to the seminar especially prepared for them for two hours. Before they left with the 8layer Experience on our community projects, advocacy and work, they also got home with them KahelOS CD Installers for them to tinker and play around.
