Google PH honors the Overseas Filipino Workers (OFW), with this sweet, heart-wrenching video. Encouraging PINOYs to "Share the everyday no matter the distance." See more g.co/balikbayan - a community for all PINOYs by connecting and sharing their stories via Google OFW Circles.
here's something to make any IT PINOY's day. those in the information technology industry surely would relate to this video."The Expert" is a funny sketch about an engineer, along with his boss and the clients, and how he is committed to achieve a-seem-to-be-impossible-and-vague-task.
it shows that management would want to get the client and thus avoid saying "no" to requirements, the clients get anxious whether the engineer (team) can do what they ask, and that most often than not, the clients didn't really know what they wanted in the first place, yet expected things to be done, just because we are "experts."
the viral vid was written and directed by Lauris Beinerts and was based on a short story, "The Meeting" by Alexey Berezin, see more details [here]
an email scam has been recently reported targeting the PINOY Overseas Contract Workers (OFWs).
the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) advised everyone to ignore emails telling them they have qualified and may apply as a nurse or caregiver at the Canadian Virtual Hospice in Winnipeg, Canada.
the said email further added that applying for the job does not have hidden charges and that the employer will shoulder the airfare, work permit fee, and working visa (sounds interesting huh?). now the catch... the candidate is told to pay at a designated Western Union and/or LBC account, for the coaching and medical exam fees and to reserve a slot at the embassy for the coaching seminar.
its unnerving how some take advantage of people who are just trying to earn a better and honest living. please share this, be aware.
months after super typhoon yolanda (haiyan) devastated some parts of the Visayas Islands in the Philippines, see how the people there continued with their lives and still be able to dance to Pharell Williams' Happy! :)
Being in IT for almost two decades now I am perhaps lucky to
have witnessed the growth of this industry.
More so, I am glad to see the "rebirth" of Java Scripting for
front-end development in the recent years.
But ask any front-end developer and one thing they dreaded most was
testing these web pages and Java Scripts.
PhantomJS - however is a game changer! //Say Hello with PhantomJS console.log('Hello, world!'); phantom.exit(); PhantomJSprovides "headless" testing of web
applications. Wait, what did I mean with headless? When you are typing a URL
from the browser, it essentially creates a request and the response is
reflected on the page. PhantomJSactually does the same thing, EXCEPT we don't need to wait for it to be
rendered before our eyes! Probably this is how it got its name :) PhantomJSalso can dynamically capture/render pages as
images, allow manipulation of page content/event, gain access to network-level information, and
ability to save import…
