14 years of empowering geeks for good
DEVCON Philippines is the largest community of software
developers, geeks, and tech future makers.
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.
DevConnect Philippines Inc. (DEVCON) is a registered non-profit organization that empowers tech professionals, developers, and future geeks. DEVCON does this through nationwide chapters and programs that provide a space to share knowledge, solve challenges, and develop impactful initiatives through technology. DEVCON is dedicated to promoting Filipino developers' ability on a global scale, whether in the academe, government, or IT industry.
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.
