Born exactly on New Year’s Eve inside a church convent, DANILO CABILDO SABADO thought of becoming a clergyperson because of the place where he was born. Destiny, however, brought him not into preaching but teaching.
An honor student since grade school, Mr. Sabado finished his baccalaureate degree in Computer Science (BSCS) in 2002 from the University of Northern Philippines, Vigan City, where he also served as a student leader of various college and university-wide organizations. He is a board passer of the Licensure Examinations for Teachers in the Philippines majoring in Business Technology in 2005. Wanting to soar higher, he enrolled Master of Information Technology (MIT). at the Technological University of the Philippines and graduated in 2008. In the same school, he finished his degree- Doctor of Technology (D.T.).
At present, he holds the position of Associate Professor V, in the College of Computer Science, the University of Makati where he served as a model of the alignment of degrees in IT Education. He is also a Professional Lecturer of the Graduate Programs of the University of Makati- College of Education. He also served as the Program Manager of the Special I.T. Programs under the School of Continuing Professional Education of the University of Makati. He was also a Professional Lecturer and Assessor of the Executive Doctorate in Leadership program, and the core lecturer of the Master in Information Systems Program of this university. Aside from being a former Director of the special I.T. Programs, faculty club president, and research and curriculum development coordinator, he also served as adviser to a huge number of Graduate (Dissertations) and Undergraduate theses. He also went out of his mother school to share his expertise by being a Consultant and IT Lecturer of The National Teachers College; and IT/ Computer Science Lecturer of FEU- East Asia College, Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Pasig, informatics, Global City Innovative College, Jose Rizal University, and the Far Eastern University- Makati.
His considered accomplishments include: being the brain of the University of Makati’s IT Education Graduate Programs and the annual ICT Research Congress showcasing researches and studies of different Colleges and Universities in the country; his researches and research projects include UMAK-CCS BSCS Application Development Batch 2012 Tracer Study; Makati City ICT Needs; Development of WiBex: A Wireless Business eXpress Finder; A Crime Monitoring System for the Philippine Police Force; Arduino in a network: An Open Source Data Logger for Low-Cost Customer Satisfaction Monitoring; Application of Participatory Research Model in the College Research and Development Program; Globalization of technology Capability in These Technological Constellations; and Utilizing a Greenhouse Activities Streamlining System Towards Accurate VPD Monitoring- some of which were presented in research conferences in the Philippines and other countries like Singapore and Japan. His greatest achievement, though, which cannot be contained into anything is the love, respect, and friendship he had gained from students whom in any way he had touched their lives and lead them to become prolific individuals.
Truly, destiny brought Mr. Sabado into the right direction for we see in him the epitome of not only a hardworking fellow but of a real educator.
