The Philippines May Become a Java Powerhouse
The Philippines May Become a Java Powerhouse

(December 6, 2001) –Sun’s Java Competency Program in Southeast Asia could help make the Philippines the regional leader in Java development, according to Lionel Lim, Sun Microsystems PTE. Ltd, vice president and managing director for Sun Asia South. “You are 77 million people. Imagine what you can do if 1% of the population learns Java,” he commented last week at the Mapua Institute of Technology in Intramuros, Manila. Lim noted that local developers could use their innate creativity to their advantage by creating original applications and adapting existing programs to new requirements.

Lim’s comments were made at a press conference announcing Sun’s partnership with the Mapua Institute of Technology and the University of the Philippines for Sun’s Java Competency program. With the help of Sun Microsystems Philippines, Inc., and other private sector partners, the schools will encourage the development of Java skills in business and research. In addition to the Philippines, the competency program named Malaysia, Singapore, Vietnam, Indonesia, and Cambodia as participants. These countries will be included in manpower development initiatives to form a Java Ring in the area, providing consultancy and apps development services to the global market.

Filipinos are known to be industrious and creative individuals and these traits are dood foundations for a good Java developer. Somehow someday Filipinos would be good enough to surpass India in terms of technical competency and developmental capacity. This article bodes well for the Filipino people...

This is indeed a most welcome news for
all of us. I am proud that this would become a reality. As a Filipino myself, I hope that more programmers in the Philippines switch to JAVA and be duly certified. I will closely watch the progress of this effort.

This is great news indeed, not only to the Philippines but to the rest of the world. Highly skilled JAVA developers in the Philippines comes at a more affordable cost which allows companies to lower their expenses specially in this continued global recession.
