Tech Ed: Faculty Summit 2007





So I did missed few slots, one of the reason is just that I was misunderstood along with some other lecturer regarding the entrance to one of the workshop. We thought that we can't enter the room given we were late(well,pasca lunch and Zuhr prayer... of course some of you need to go to toilet for some real reason). The next day I found out the slot didn't really fully occupied since the attendees do their own exhibit walk at the exhibition hall. Well, as expected, managed to get few free goodies. And since I did came sponsored, free lunch was served.

Only two slots that I found interesting: Controlling robot using mobile device and Windows Academic Program. It just that I managed to know some updates by Microsoft to let their part closer to the academia world. Of course with some license restrictions it was kinda let the researcher felt "disrupted". But since I'm putting myself on learning the technologies, I just let myself not neutral…
Minor change

I decided to change the theme from "bertatih mencari makna" to "life of a single computer science dude wannabe" because it seems kinda motivation to me. Secondly it just that I want to do "rebranding" since Bank Islam did it and I don't like the new BIMB image for whatever justification that they tell the whole media. I, the loyal BIMB credit card and al-Wadiah savings account usage felt kinda distracted with the BIMB new image.

Perhaps I just want to see the progress of the juniors of my school where I served for:

2005:
ACM-ICPC Regional at Beijing: not a winner

2006:
MMU Programming competition: 1st place
UTP programming competition:not a winner

2007:
MMU Programming competition:not a winner
UNITEN programming competition: 1st place
UiTM programming competition: not a winner

I guess being consistent is pretty hard. What's next?
