PHIWUG Presents–Boots on the ground!


Yesterday marks a milestone for user groups here in Manila. Its our 10th year anniversary and what better way to celebrate but to do another community-led event!

To get things started (really really hyped start) its no better than Mr. Joel Garcia himeself, DX Director of Microsoft Philippines doing the welcome remarks.




How hyped? I forgot to take pictures as we are all very very much engaged especially when he got the actual Microsoft Hololens out of the bag.



Next is my demo, Windows Server 2016 Technical Preview 5 on Microsoft Azure.




Next is Jay-R Barrios (Microsoft MVP for Cloud and Datacenter Management from Singapore) and one of the geeks that started this user group and the one that recruited me to the community.


His talk no less than create an entire infrastructure on an Intel NUC and Surface Book. Did it using Microsoft Deployment Toolkit and System Center Configuration Manager.


Then its Jay Paloma’s turn on Career in Desktop. Doing talk about desktop deployments and more deployment essentials. Also did I say already that he is an MVP since 2007?



Its also handy if you got a CEH guy hanging around the venue. One of our core member Ren Narvaez, MVP for Enterprise Security delivered a hacking topic that I really really cannot show on my blog. Again guys, those are for educational purposes only. Dont try those at home!



Many thanks also to Microsoft Philippines for allowing us to use their 8th floor conference / events place as well as the food and SWAGS for the attendees. Thanks for your usual support (for 10 years now) to our User Groups!



So thanks for attending our event guys!


See you on our next community event!
