Developers Connect Philippines (DevCon)
DEVCON or Developers Connect, is a non-profit organization which aims to promote the Filipino IT Talent by providing a unique venue for IT students, educators, professionals, and enthusiasts to Sync, Support, and Succeed.
DEVCON started out as a pioneering project of the Philippine Software Industry Association (PSIA) with its pilot event DevCon Visayas, which was held at the TechBar in Cebu City. The project eventually spanned a ten-city nationwide tour as part of the Next Wave Cities roadshow which was ran by the then Commission on Information and Communications Technology (CICT) and Business Processing Association of the Philippines (BPA/P) in 2009.
To improve its reach, the project eventually partnered with the Philippine Society of IT Educators (PSITE) to make the DevCon events accessible to IT students nationwide. Eventually, DevCon registered under the Securities and Exchange Commission becoming the non-profit organization we have come to know today.See more
