Prior to his hiatus from working full-time, he indulged himself as one of the system administrators in the engineering team of Defender Technologies Group. Chivas takes pride in being part of DOST-ASTI (Advanced Science and Technology Institute) on Bayanihan Linux. His team advocated the use of open source software for the computing needs of government agencies, schools, and small and medium-size enterprises in the Philippines.

Ryan Baclit is a Linux and web programming instructor at the Bluepoint Institute of Higher Technology in Manila. He used to administer open source databases and networks in a previous life, before he discovered that those who can do, teach.
