DevCup is set this August 15 and 16, 2015 at Meralco, Multi-Purpose Hall in Ortigas. Through DevCup, amazing developers get to huddle and accomplish things, showcase their skills, as well as learn and build awesome apps. WebGeek Philippines is proud to spearhead this amazing event.

The contestants / developers working on their mini projects
In DevCup, participants develop apps that conform to a theme. After two days of grueling yet exciting hacking, only one team will make it to the top and become the DevCup champion. Champion for last year’s DevCup was Team Langitngit with their app Sheltr.me which is a web app that displays residential listings together with geographical data that helps you decide which place best suits you.

For 2nd place, Team Cash Loans with their app BizSight, an analytics app for small to medium scale enterprises. 3rd place goes to Team Ghost Pro with Unearth.js, a node module that sandboxes your app so that it will run alongside Unearth.js’ own CLI monitoring. A jury prize was awarded to Xolve Alpha for their app Cheers a semantic analysis app that helps you understand your friends mood using their Facebook posts.
