StackTrek to Hold Coding eSports Competition this August


Wazzup Pilipinas!

It is without any doubt that majority of our workforce are not euipped with the fitting skills and talent to their chosen careers. A great number fall to call center or BPO employment since it is the primary leading work opportunity, while a few would work overseas to get more financially-motivating opportunities.

It is noble for companies like StackTrek that aims to attract employers towards our country by either giving potentially promising coders or developers the proper skills to enhance their capabilities competitive enough to the global standards through their StackEd and StackLab. StackED is providing tech platform for education, bias-free skills assessment, and talent improvement to universities and schools. StackLab is providing a space for the best tech talent to be hired by global tech companies.

and to look for already capables through their StackLeague. StackLeague is the first, free, and largest coding Esports competition to be held on August 3-4, 2019 at the StackLeague Arena Tektite (former Philippine Stock Exchange, Trading Floor in Ortigas).  It aims to create and provide equal opportunities for developers to showcase their skills.

With the objective of changing the education to employment landscape, StackTrek aims to transform a nation’s education and economic future. True enough, I believe in this principle since making the people more capable would attract more employers to look into the Philippines, not only Metro Manila, but even looking into the workforce based in the provinces that benefitted from the learning opportunities given by StackTrek.

The analytics than can be derived could help employers identify their needs. It would be a valuable tool to address employment requirements that would greatly benefit companies.

To learn more, please watch the videos of our interview and discussion during the presentation and Q&A at the media launch held a few days ago at the Trader's Lounge at Tektite Building

Florian Groebel, General Manager, and Nigel Villanueva, League Director,  John Gonzales, Business Development Officer, and Bill Yuen, CEO and Founder of StackTrek, all provided significant information to us during the event.

Similar to what they did in Iloilo, StackTrek will soon hold a Coding eSports competition on August 3 & 4 at the former Trading Hall of Tektite, and hopefully to create an equally successful output.





Below are the official press releases from the media launch:

StackTrek: Bringing Equality in Programming Education and Employment

The company boasts of deep expertise and propriety technologies in assessing, analyzing, and improving programmer capability – enabling the Filipino graduate to be competitive in the 4th industrial revolution.

StackTrek has an ambitious agenda: that every student should graduate armed with career-ready IT knowledge. After all, no other subject can open doors in the 21st century like programming.The company has plans touching on tech education, economic development, equality, and inclusiveness. Currently, StackTrek is working with the government to bring universal programming education to the entire nation.
