DevCon Overview

Promote and propagate the software engineering profession in the Philippines
What is DevCon?
A registered non-stock, non-profit organization founded in June 2009, Developers Connect (DevCon) provides a relaxed venue for individuals to socialize with fellow geeks, mentors, employers and the rest of the IT community.
Our events have evolved from unconferences (composed of Lightning Talks, Birds of a Feather and Hackathon) to focus-group driven Geekups and Code Camps that envision the bridging of the academe–IT industry divide.
