Edit Event Message G Like ShareAttach: Write something... Matt Lebrun I'd like to share my realizations when I joined the corporate world which I hope would be of some help in the coming Curriculum Development. It is in my best intention to help the future generation of IT students in DBTC. This will come in random since I'm writing this as I think so please bear with me. 13 hours ago · Comment · Like · Flag Matt Lebrun To appreciate our Accounting subjects better introduce ERP to the students. A lot of opportunities await in the business-side of IT. Also I agree to give SOENG more focus as it will greatly help. 13 hours ago · Like Matt Lebrun Software programming jobs will see a decline of demand in the US in the next 5-10yrs. A few reasons are offshoring and outsourcing. But Software Engineering will rise in demand in the US for the next 5-10yrs. Two things can be taken from this. Countries like us may benefit from the offshored/outsourced jobs and a foresight that Software Engineering might/will/is a critical role for an IT graduate to consider. 13 hours ago · Like Matt Lebrun I always wished we had more projects where there will be chances to talk to real clients, learn their business, gather specs, think of how technology can solve their problem, document it, then develop the solution. Having this will give our IT graduates a very strong edge once they step into the corporate world. This would've build their business, people, and technical skills. 13 hours ago · Like · Matt Lebrun I always remember Sir Barcy saying in a project 70% goes to planning, research, specs gathering, consolidation, etc and 30% goes to development or programming. I found this to be very true in corporate, sometimes its even 80:20 or 90:10. 13 hours ago · Like · Matt Lebrun Web development and Mobile development will be very hot areas for those who wish to pursue programming in the next 5-10yrs because of Web 3.0 and Cloud Computing. Even talks on Web 4.0 is spreading and 1 person 1 person Search Home Profile Acco Chat (Offline)
  2. 2. should be kept in mind. 13 hours ago · Like · Matt Lebrun The programming language used is trivial compared to having a programmer's mindset. Therefore logical/problem-solving skills is very important. In the corporate world, you don't always have a say/choice as to what language will be used but if you have grasped the basics you're well on your way to learning any programming language. Anyhow, if you don't know their language of choice they'll train you but the classroom/laboratory is the best place to instill a programmer's mindset. 13 hours ago · Like · Matt Lebrun As an elective, our IT students might also benefit from learning SEO and SEM. 13 hours ago · Like Matt Lebrun I've also learned that people skills is even more important than technical skills. 85% of your success in business will be affected by this and only 15% by your technical prowess. You'll meet managers/team leaders inferior to your technical skills but the reason they're in that position is because they know how to manage people. The people at the top are not necessarily the best at what they do but they're the best at managing people who are the best at what they do. Likewise, our Theology and Psychology classes are very much appreciated in this regard – Technology with a Soul remember? 13 hours ago · Like · Matt Lebrun Most of the time students think of the two subjects mentioned above as a bore and waste, but once you're faced with the critical, harsh, demanding, brutal, energy-sucking reality of the corporate world or just life outside the academe you'll value the lessons learned from those subjects. The corporate pay thousands just to give their employees the lessons we are already learning from those subjects. So please value them. Take notes and keep them with you especially once you step out of school. 13 hours ago · Like Matt Lebrun Back to Cloud and other emerging web technologies. It is because of these that Network Security will be an ever so hot topic in the very very near future. Knowledge and expertise in this field will be very important. 13 hours ago · Like Matt Lebrun Back to our Elective subjects. Since the choice of path to take after an IT student graduates is vast, could be possible that the student can have a choice of elective to take? For example if the student wishes to take the Networking side of IT then would have a choice of having an elective that would teach him more advanced topics in that field (Network security and the like). Or if its on the development/software engineering side the more advanced topics in this regard can be taken. 13 hours ago · Like · Matt Lebrun There's still a few things that must've escaped my thoughts, but that's it for now :) I hope this helps. 13 hours ago · Like Matt Lebrun Sorry for the redundant things ive mentioned. I just read the other posts here after I posted my thoughts ^_^; 13 hours ago · Like · Rodelio Barcenas Great Matt, ang dami na nito.. thanks for the help...

Kahit nosebleed ata ako sa ibang mga pinagsasasabi mo sir. One point i would like to raise though is on the networking side lang naman. I really wish we could offer a networking courseware for the lesser gifted in programming, particularly modules of Cisco, ccent and icnd2, and then later on perhaps routing,switching, netsec fundamentals as you were pointing out... -mac 11 hours ago · Like Bogs Abraham Im not taking anything away from datacoms, but if there only was a substitute non programming subject and a competent networking subject that other technical students could perhaps go and excel at, this would be the most qualified alternative :) all other schools have them, baka pwede din satin. Again its just my opinion, and others too... i know its not going to be easy, but i know it will be for the good of our bosconian community. peace! regards sirs Pro deo et patria 11 hours ago · Like Rodelio Barcenas Yes change is a painstaking thing to pursue always. OK lang yun Bogs... everyone needs to grow.... Thanks for the inputs 31 minutes ago · Like Giovanni Petrache More elective subjects(No maximum limit of enrolled elective subjects) - if its possible to start elective classes(basics/introduction) in the 1st year level so students would be able to know what field to specialize especially for the undecided ones basic entrepreneurial management subjects - lets say, you have the skills of doing those IT stuff. But do you want to be come an employee till you retire or do you want retire early and be our own boss? I am currently into web development, making web sites for different companies in which they are making shit loads of money. So this idea came into my mind, instead of making web sites for them why wont I make my own web site or program and profit from it. 20 hours ago · Comment · Unlike · Flag You, Allan Butz Malunes and Christian Jesus Cerillo like this.

Since most of the things that are in the internet today can be based on Social Medias. I, for one never thought that IT and Marketing can co-exists. I remembered that we tackled at IRM about web crawling, and if it is possible that you can go deeper to SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and SEM. If ever, there are a lot of possibilities to learn more lalo na dynamic ang technology today.

Cutting the story short, news claims he uses SEO/SEM to redirect traffic to his favored brand thus occupying the first 10 links in search engines. It was a crime because it's unethical to use meta tags to misrepresent a company Ex. If your brand is Jolibee but you used meta tags related to mcdo in effect when anyone types in search engine 'mcdo hamburgers' a jolibbe entry will still appear. I've researched more about the topic and I found out that SEO/SEM is taught at AMA or STI ata as elective. I'll post if I found more details of the topic. 15 hours ago · Like Rodelio Barcenas Sige Allan, give me more info about this... Nice info.... 7 minutes ago · Like Alvin Boki Some suggestions also for students who are considering Software Engineering 1. Do NOT take forgranted the lessons about SDLC. It is the lifeline of the software engineering line and you cannot just "code and deploy" your program without some proper planning on how you accomplish your project. 2. Do NOT limit yourself to the programming. Clients will also be confident of your skills if you can configure servers, deploy applications, identify frameworks, etc. But of course you have the option of being a specialist of your field 3.

I've been on the Software Engineering industry, but most of my batchmate also end up in Database Administration and Systems Administrators.

Kasi minsan pansin ko din, tama naman ung code, un nga lang mali ung output.. 22 hours ago · Like Giovanni Petrache mas mahirap gumawa ng system kapag hindi clear yung requirements ng client.... - i regularly encounter this problem cause of language barrier(talking to a french project manager who doesn't speaks english that well). there are tickets assigned to me that has no specs, and there are also bugs needed to be fix but no explanation why it is a bug. what i do is, keep asking questions till i understand the requirement and document it and show it to him. we really cant rely on client in making the documentation so we have to do it on our own. 18 hours ago · Like Aletheia Maclang @Iyoy: kaya nga.. hehehe.. :) dapat maexercise yung pag-create nila ng process... hindi sila dapat magrely sa syntax.. :P hehehe... mas mahalaga yung process flow. :P 14 hours ago · Like Aletheia Maclang @Giovanni: I agree... usually I keep on sending e-mails to the client to confirm kung yun yung talagang gusto nilang ipagawa.. kasi kapag nagpabago bago sila ng requirements, tapos wala kang document/proof na maipapakita na iba yung pinag-usapan niyo... lagot ka.. hahha 14 hours ago · Like Christian Tan | Mine's SAP-ABAP. Thursday at 11:15pm · Comment · Like · Flag Rodelio Barcenas Any inputs re ABAP? What is it? a database? SQL? or Other? Friday at 2:38pm · Like Rodelio Barcenas Medyo mahal ang SAP but I think there is a work around... Meron nag punta dito from fast track solutions and gave me the framework of SAP. I think the reason why it will be harder for a grad to participate is because of the many jargons in business operations. I'm planning to introduce this This can be adapted by accounting, finit and MIS Friday at 4:56pm · Like Bitoy Mitra Since SAP is expensive why not for Sharepoint? hehe Friday at 7:45pm · Like Christian Tan | ABAP is the programming language of SAP. It says that the syntax is similar to COBOL (I have no idea since I do not know COBOL) but for me, it has its similarities with C, PHP and JAVA. 21 hours ago · Like Rodelio Barcenas If that is a cobol language... we can insert it in the electives. Meron Open Cobol sa linux... which uses the same syntax as the real COBOL 20 hours ago · Like Rodelio Barcenas tama ba? COBOL is commonly used in old banks? i.e. BPI 20 hours ago · Like Chat (Offline)
  15. 15. Write a comment... Carlo Arcilla I just wanted to note that maybe it would tremendously help the department if they will be retrofitting/reorganizing the curriculum based on the current trends. Most of us found ourselves in a middle of a jungle when we 1st set out to work. Thursday at 11:14pm · Comment · Like · Flag Christian Tan likes this. Carlo Arcilla We will be more than happy to supply you with inputs or maybe even personal work experiences so that future alumni can arm themselves better after graduating. Thursday at 11:16pm · Like Rodelio Barcenas Please be specific. Thanks for the inputs... Thursday at 11:16pm · Like Carlo Arcilla We are currently involved in SAP practice and based on my experience so far, our curriculum was based on an idea that students should be well equipped on all aspects of technology within the scopes of IT. But I believe that maybe being a sort of "jack of all trades" makes us "aces of none." so maybe a little focus or maybe having a major in a particular technology can greatly benefit to the student's mastery of that practice. Thursday at 11:22pm · Like Rodelio Barcenas OK. copy... our current free elective is not really free elective... offering a large range topics can help students choose their specializations... what do you think? Thursday at 11:30pm · Like Christian Tan | I agree with James. For me, the whole Linux mania didn't help at all. We were made to believe that we have the "edge" if we know Linux. I believe the curriculum should focus more on what's REALLY out there in the industry the likes of SAP, Oracle, Cisco -> knowing these systems will really give you a headstart in playing the game. Thursday at 11:31pm · Like Christian Tan | One more thing, since it is I.T., we should give more focus in programming since that's what we're expected to do when employers learn that we graduated from that degree. Put the other subjects aside or atleast give little emphasis on them. C, Java, PHP - the students need to develop the art of analysis, logical thinking and programming. Just my 2 cents. Thursday at 11:35pm · Like · Carlo Arcilla That's a start sir. I was thinking the same thing. Actually, issue samin yan back then. We hope that by raising this issue, a proper elective system can finally be established. Thursday at 11:35pm · Unlike · Rodelio Barcenas Copy... Oracle ---> done Sir Alvin is doing a great job now by integrating more DB in advance DB subject; Nagawan na niya yung Oracle but not implemented yet... May plans din POSTGRE to be included. Sir Rico is now introducing more inputs coming from CISCO. Malayo na rin yung nadagdag niya. Baka may particular requirements from CISCO?

This would mean teachers handling subjects in the lower years should have a real good curriculum... Enjoy ako dito sa inputs ninyo... mababasa naman nila ito.... thanks Thursday at 11:41pm · Like Christian Tan | Exactly Sir. Analysis and Logical thinking are the keys. Programming language won't matter once you master the keys. Which brings me to my point, spend more time on programming not on arts, psychology et al. And what really gave me a problem back then in college was remembering the lessons discussed - I hope mabago yung schedule. Make the major subjects (programming) run 3x a week. Atleast 2 hours a day. Hasahin sila ng mabuti. Lunurin sila sa programming. It is true that practice makes perfect. More lab time. More exercises. Just to share, I learned programming by using pen and paper only. Mahirap at first pero when I switched into doing it on the computer, piece of cake. And please, NO MORE TAKE HOME QUIZZES/EXAMS. Kudos to you Sir and the whole IT Department. I wish I was able to experience Oracle and Cisco din. Mabenta sa employer kasi when they see those in your resume. Friday at 12:23am · Like Rodelio Barcenas yup... same here... technology is just an icing on the cake Friday at 1:05pm · Like Bitoy Mitra ok sana kung maka experience ng .NET ang students since a lot of big enterprises uses this one mahal nga lang. .NET / SAP / Oracle would really make someone marketable.

It really helps Thursday at 11:19pm · Like Rodelio Barcenas @ IP Telephony, I think we can add this activity in our current advance datacomms... something like asterisk? yun nga lang we can only use soft phones. Mahal kasi yung telephone cards... OK ba yun? Thursday at 11:21pm · Like Rodelio Barcenas What about yung sa PHP? Currently we are introducing Frameworks like Code Igniter, moving towards PHP Cake? Yung Zend Framework medyo madugo Thursday at 11:22pm · Like George Averilla Yup mahal lang talaga ang IP telephony devices and related software to manage it.
