WebGeek DevCup 2015: Happening this August 15 and 16
Nowadays, there seems to be a hackathon everywhere we look, and why not? A hackathon is an engaging way to perk up individuals or groups to bring out potentially productive apps that can be useful in many industries. A new-found system can become applicable not only to the current theme of the hackathon but can also be applied elsewhere.
I've been to a rice hackathon at IRRI, a Hack the Climate event at St. Benilde, and a lot more that's too many to mention. I guess everyone is all in favor of finding creative solutions or innovations to our many problems that currently has antiquated or no existing solutions at all.
There are so many young and bright minds out there that there's bound to be someone who can discover an epic way to do things quickly, efficiently or differently.
On August 15th and 16th, WebGeek Philippines will be hosting the fourth edition of the WebGeek DevCup Hackathon at Meralco Multi-Purpose Hall, Meralco Compound, Ortigas.
WebGeek has consistently organized DevCup since 2012. From the very start, the goal was to showcase the Filipino talent in information technology and competitiveness in the global space. To confidently compete in the global space. Last year, there were 65 teams who managed to create 55 apps at the end of the 2-day hackathon.
This annual gathering of developers, designers, technology professionals and enthusiasts shows how to use cutting edge technologies and current trends in development an app. You can sign up as an individual, or up to a maximum of three as a team. Conceptualize, develop, and create your bizarre kind of app that is of course in harmony with the given theme.
I missed the hackathon last year due to a conflicting out-of-town event but I would really want to attend this year's run. Come in alone or with your friends and colleagues to try coming up with a revolutionary app that would soon change the world.
Early bird tickets will be available on July 15 until 17. Last year, 2014, tickets were sold out in just 2 days. Register early, as slots are limited.
