PINOY IT Community Called to Help in Yolanda Victims


calling ALL IT PINOYs, here is a chance to make use our tech talents and help out the super-typhoon Yolanda victims.

sharing this information from our colleague, Dave Quitoriano:

"Dear Tech community, let's volunteer our gifts to help our kababayans. Relief goods and food can be donated by others. But your tech skills are your gifts that only you can donate. Technology was a driving force in the fast recovery during the Haiti earthquake, tsunami affected Banda Aceh, Indonesia and many others. Let's all pitch in and lend a hand. See you there! Details here:

Sharing the message from Fernando Contreras Jr.: 'To those who want to volunteer their talent in developing software/apps to help the relief effort for the Visayas region, our first meeting will be on Nov 13, 4:30pm at Imperium's office 5F YL Building 115 VA Rufino Street Legaspi Village Makati. I'll also be online on Skype for those who want to join remotely. Please PM if you are attending.'"
