Announcing the 2016 WebGeek DevCup Hackathon
For the fifth consecutive year, WebGeek will host its annual hackathon, DevCup, on August 20-21, 2016 at the Meralco Multi-purpose Hall in Ortigas.
DevCup aims to bring together amazing developers, designers, and technology professionals to create innovative apps and showcase the Philippine developer talent. Participants are provided with a theme in which they must develop their app and they are given two days to complete their app to be presented to the judges.
Last 2015, 70 teams battled it out for the DevCup championship title. Out of the 70 registered teams, 60 apps were presented at the end of the event for the judges to select. The winning team of Jose Marco Padillo, Giovanni Angelo Balaguer and Micah Andrew Bule of Cynder, presented their app First Response which provides crowdsourced notifications for information dissemination during a disaster or calamity . On second place are Jezer Crespo, Marc Levinson B. Suarez, Reynaldo Del Rosario Jr of Xudoer with Xonar and CodeBuddy was third place with Connectify, with members Patrick Ofilada and Rommel David.
Early bird registration opens on July 18 until the 20. You can sign up as an individual, or up to a maximum of three as a team. Last year, tickets were sold out in just 2 days. Better to register early, as the event only have limited slots.
This year’s DevCup is expected to be as exciting as the previous years’ hackathons with the participation and support of Philippine developers as well as its esteemed sponsors. With your support we can make it a collaborative and fun experience for everyone.
