MANILA, Philippines--A soft-spoken Filipina in her early twenties was recently named project leader of one of many open source community projects run by the Apache Software Foundation.

Maria Odea "Deng" Ching, 25, became the first Filipino vice president and project management committee chairperson of the Apache Archiva Project of the foundation, a non-profit organization that supports numerous open source projects around the world.

In an interview, Ching said she is also one of two women members of the Apache Archiva Project project management committee, which is composed of 15 members.

A graduate of Bachelor Science in Computer Studies from the De La Salle University in Manila, Ching is currently working for software development firm Exist Global, which holds office in Ortigas Center in Pasig City.

A programmer by training, Ching said that "hard work" and active participation in the open source community has led her to being voted chairperson of the project.

The Apache Archiva Project is a top-level open source project that provides global software developers with a repository for components needed to build software applications.

As part of her responsibility in Exist Global, Ching said she has been actively contributing to the project--begun in March 2008--until she assumed her current position.

There are about 1,000 developers involved in the Apache Software Foundation, which is currently doing more than 60 projects.
