Attending POSSE APAC at NYP for the first 2 days and we have been trying to complete some exercises in an unstructured way. We were being given some problems and asked to blog about and expect some answers will be coming in from fellow Open Source friends. Seems like posting a question in a forum/irc channel and etc.
