DevCup aims to gather amazing developers, designers, and technology professionals to create innovative apps. It also wishes to showcase the Philippine developer talent. Participants are provided with a theme in which they must develop their app. They are given two days to complete their app. The said app is to be presented to the judges.
Last year, 70 teams battled it out for the DevCup championship title. Out of the 70 registered teams, 60 apps were presented at the end of the event. Then, the judges now choose the winners.
The winning team presented their app First Response which provides crowdsourced notifications for information dissemination during a disaster or calamity.
The team was composed of Jose Marco Padillo, Giovanni Angelo Balaguer and Micah Andrew Bule of Cynder.
On second place is the app called Xonar.
The team is composed of Jezer Crespo, Marc Levinson B. Suarez, Reynaldo Del Rosario Jr of Xudoer.
CodeBuddy was third place with Connectify.
The team members are Patrick Ofilada and Rommel David.
