Announcing the 2016 WebGeek DevCup Hackathon


On its fifth year, WebGeek will host its annual DevCup hackathon on August 20-21, 2016, at the Meralco Multi-purpose Hall, 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.

In 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.

Sign up as an individual participant, or  as a team up to a maximum of three.

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.
