DEVCON (Developers Connect)
is the Philippines’ largest community of technology experts, developers and IT enthusiasts. We aim to promote collaborative growth and global competence of Filipino developers in the academe, government and IT industry by providing a unique venue for everyone to Sync, Support, and Succeed.
To create vibrant communities of software developers empowered with knowledge, open-source software, and opportunities to solve impactful initiatives for the country.
Every Filipino developer is a successful developer that contributes to digital transformation of the country.
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.
