DEVCON (Developers Connect)
Enabling, equipping and empowering a community of geeks for good.
To create vibrant communities of software developers empowered with knowledge, open-source software, and opportunities to solve impactful initiatives for the country.
A digitally transformed Philippines for all.
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.
Known for hosting free conferences for IT students, educators, professionals and enthusiasts, DEVCON has grown to having over 40,000 participants since June 2009. It is highly sought after by educational institutions through its Campus DEVCON programs that aim to augment the academic learning of students with up-to-date trends in the IT industry.
