Posted on: June 24, 2019

True to its commitment in encouraging employees to discover new learnings in the field of IT, WebFocus’ management decided to sponsor employees from the Production Team to attend the DevCon Summit 2019.

DevCon Summit is one of the much-awaited IT events in the Philippines that is organized by Developers Connect (DEVCON) Philippines. This non-profit organization aims to empower Filipino developers and promote the “IT Pinoy Talent”. It provides venue for IT students, educators, professionals, and enthusiasts to Sync, Support, and Succeed. The initiatives and activities organized by DevCon operate as core drivers to fulfill its vision: a country with highly active communities of globally competent developers.

In 2019, DevCon Summit’s theme was entitled “The Future of Jobs, Embracing Industry 4.0” which was held at SMX Convention Center Aura in Taguig City and well-attended by young professionals from different parts of our country.

The main attraction of the event was the seminars presented by several speakers from different IT organizations. The topics include Artificial Intelligence, Analytics, Robotics, BlockChain, CryptoCurrency, DevOps and Cloud Computing. Also, several activities simultaneously happening on the side which made this event even more amazing. While the young programmers demonstrated their great talent in programming, students from various schools in the Philippines showcased some of the games that they have developed by themselves at the Pavillion area. They also competed against each other during the Robotics Challenge wherein the robot they have built themselves were challenged to finish series of tasks as criteria for judging.
