This month marks the 10 years that YugaTech has been a full-fledged tech website.

This month marks the 10 years that YugaTech has been a full-fledged tech website. While I actually started the site in 2000 under the free hosting of Hypermart.net and bought the domain in 2002, the site was mostly a portfolio page with a little section for my journal entries. It was sometime in December 2005 that I decided to leave the corporate world and ventured into what was then a promising new prospect that is the Internet.

Taught myself web design, downloaded and printed 500+ pages of the PHP manual and studied web programming during my daily commute from Ortigas to Bacoor. I also forced myself to update the “online journal” every single day to teach myself how to write (flunked English subjects in high school and college). I said turn your weakness into a strength.

They say that when you love what you are doing, you will not feel it is work and time flies very fast. Indeed, the last 10 years seemed to breeze thru. We formed the editorial team in 2012 and we’re a now strong 7-man team, all of whom are as passionate as I am with tech.

Our key ingredient is passion. We love to discover, tinker around and share what we learn with people who we think have the same interest and passion for tech.

So, to celebrate the 10 years, we’ll be doing a give-away that we’ve never done before (stay tuned for that!). We will also be hosting a party with friends, industry partners and regular readers that later turned out to be great friends. We will also be making a contribution to an organization that promotes entrepreneurship or online education among out of school youth.

We thank you for the last 10 years and we hope you’ll stick with us for the next 10!

Happy Holidays!

– Yuga
