It was a lecture series, forum, entertainment show and informercial rolled into one!

The recent PSITE NCR back-to-back monthly seminar-workshops (MSW) held at the Augusto Rosario Theater, De La Salle University-College of St. Benilde (DLSU-CSB) last 28-Jan-2012 was a big blast! More than 300 students and faculty members from PSITE NCR member-schools participated in this highly successful event!


The delegates were hosted by the Dean of the School of Management and Information Technology (SMIT), Mr. Benhur Ong, who delivered the welcome remarks!  The morning session was devoted to the lightning talks of the Developers Challenge (Devcon) event.  Industry practitioners from various companies in the industry talked about relevant and interesting topics such as Lean Management, IT Security, Virtualization Technology, Service Management & ITIL V3, etc.  Further, questions raised by the participants added depth and dimension, as the practitioners shared their thoughts and ideas to them.  Sponsors like Epson, Oleia, Jollibee, and others, provided give-aways to further add jest and fun to the participants! The sumptuous lunch was provided by Jollibee.  While waiting for the afternoon session, Oleia sponsor and resident doctor presented health-related benefits of therapeutic oils.


The afternoon session became much more entertaining and lively, as no less than the Optical Media Board Chairperson Ronnie Ricketts introduced his organization and talked about their Digital Privacy and Anti-Piracy campaign!  The entertainment was provided by comic DinkyDoo Clarioin, which made the audience laughed to their hearts’ content, especially when DinkyDoo invited two volunteer students to sing and act with him accompanied by the Bohemina Rhapsody song of Queen!  The OMB agent followed with a lecture on what constitutes digital privacy, anti-piracy, laws and intellectual property rights!


Towards the end of the afternoon session, the crowd was treated with rap number from CB, and had given away free CD albums to the students!  The photo booth provided by EPSON captured the smiles and beauty of the participants with the guests!  The event was really successful!  As the heading says, it was a lecture series, forum, entertainment show and infomercial found under one roof!  Keep it up, PSITE NCR!
