Continuing with our activities last Saturday November 16th the first event “E-commerce – First Steps” was held, focusing on boosting the number of developers of technological applications involving electronic commerce, this is the first activity of the Encom community supported by WIT-Peru. We are passionate about the technologies that we believe is very important in all our activities and in which we have been supporting in coordination with different communities to achieve knowledge sharing, participation and the increasing number of people become more involved in different technologies and tools. Today activities related to e-commerce in our country is increasing and our goal this time is focused in that direction, increasing the participation of more technology professionals interested in this area or who are currently working directly with e-commerce like me and find a place to exchange, share experiences, activities, meet and learn more.

Rather than write about the topics covered in this first module, as the sommelier is available here, this post is to share my experience: Introduce your business idea, other ideas and at the same time to review concepts and associate them with something real, out of the theory; was extremely rewarding for me because not only received feedback for WiT (yes, WiT Peru also plans;)) and some other personal projects also was infected me feeling entrepreneurial business and my vision is a little (lot) more clear. Super Recommended!

Drupalchix by WiT Perú in Drupal Camp!

Drupalchix by WiT Perú in Drupal Camp!

“Less than 2% of the people involved in open source code are women, which leave us terribly represented…” This is a phrase that I kept with me when I first entered the site of the Drupalchix community more than five years ago. Drupalchix is the Women’s Community inside the Drupal.org promoted by Angela Byron (Co-maintainer of Drupal) that is aimed to guide more people (whether men or women) in order to increase that little number of women participation on software development so that we could encourage more women to use Drupal as a framework or that they can contribute with the Drupal Community on any way. There are three fundamental reasons that can help you decide on joining the Drupalchix community: If you are a woman that has a liking for technology, software development and are willing to get to know other women that use Drupal, this is the place to be. If you are a woman and need help with Drupal development, this is also the right place. If you are someone with the idea to encourage more people to participate in Drupal development, you are invited too. Women in Technology Perú in coordination with the Drupal Perú Community is organizing the first Drupalchix in Perú this following Saturday, October 19, within DrupalCamp Perú. The purpose of this event is to increase the participation of women in Drupal as an alternative to the development of web applications. In this event we will present some basic principles so that you can get to know this tool as well as being able to achieve the main objective, which is that the participants are able to interact and take their first steps with Drupal. You can check all the details of the event here. Also, you...

WiT Peru in #edutech2

On October 4th and 5th, we participated in the interactive technology conference for education: Edutech at the University of Lima, organized by the U.S. Embassy. Edutech aims to improve the learning process through the incorporation of technologies and teaching methods. During the 2 days of the conference, the agenda revolves around talks, panel discussions, case presentations and interactive sessions successful. WiT Peru participated with a short but very productive session entitled “Collaborative Education with Google.” The session aimed to demonstrate to participants, most educators, the services that can be accessed with the account that already had to gmail. That is, to exploit its full google account for their own benefit and that of their students. Freddy and Jhoon, made ​​small demos of Google+: profile creation, circles, communities, Hang Out, Google Drive. With these services teachers realized how easy it would publish them tasks, create online assessments but most share with their students via online and maintain contact with other educators and communities. As logoff and as a way to maintain contact was created a community with all the attendees of the 2 sessions held during the Edutech. Thanks for coming and share...
