Now lies the true test of what I’ve learned during my n+ years of stay in UP. Although this is a just a course in summer, I’m pretty nervous but at the same excited. This will surely give me a lot of experience that I can use after graduation. I will be joined by my fellow Computer Science Students (and Web Science Group Interns) Mark Anthony Morada and JR Ramirez. We will working on the company Philippine Open-soure Distribution (POD). It was Ruzette Tanyag who introduced us to the company.

Philippine Open-source Distribution is a Philippine based company incubated in Open TBI under DOST and PEZA. It is supported by ASTI and TRCand periodically reports to a steering committee composed of public and private institutions including UP. POD provides Open-source Migration Solutions for offices, Linux Server Solutions for small and medium businesses, and Linux Desktop Solutions for school computer laboratories.

The three of us (me, Mark Morada and JR Ramirez) will be working closely to develop a time tracking system for a construction firm client to solve issues such as removing padding/cheating in salaries, remove tampering, automatically computing wages and have automated reporting, among others, in order to improve time efficiency, lower costs, maximize profits, and so on of the client.

The time tracking system will be implemented using¬†Java¬†and will be installed in a Netbook Computer. We will be using¬†NetBeans IDE 6.8¬†for the project. One new technology that we will be using for the course of the project is¬†SVN or Subversion. “It is a free/open-source version control system. It manages files and directories and the changes made to them, over time. This allows you to recover older versions of your data, or examine the history of how your data changed. In this regard, many people think of a version control system as a sort of time machine.” ¬†¬†(Collins-Sussman, Fitzpatrick and Pilato, “Version Control with Subversion).
