WebGeek DevCup: More than just a Hackathon!

Up for an awesome challenge? Can you build a website within a limited span of time? Got that oh-la-la feeling when it comes to the crowd? Yep? yes? YES! Alright! Join this awesome WebGeek event called the WebGeek DevCup! I won’t do the talking this time, let me quote the details below…


On August 25, 2012, WebGeek Philippines will be bringing you the WebGeek DevCup, an all-day hackathon extravaganza that will give rise to the most creative and most skillful team to deliver the best web application.

Just form a duo, trio? or if you’re bold enough, go solo to be able to participate in the hackathon. Registered participants only need to bring their own laptop and development tools (pre-packaged libraries, widgets, and frameworks) and they’re good to go! The organizers will be providing the internet connection, power, space, food, and drinks.

In this day-long hackathon, each team will be given six hours to develop a web application based on the theme to be given that day. Presentations will be delivered from 8:00 PM to 10:00 PM. During this time, teams are expected to have accomplished a web app that will either be fully or partially functional.

If the web app is not finished by the allotted time, the team should be able to explain how they would implement the technology for the unfinished parts, and how they intend to implement it technologically. Incomplete parts or projects may be represented by wire-frames or other plan documents. Five minutes is allotted for the judges’ questions about each app. Deliberation will commence after the presentations, and those who emerge victorious will be handsomely rewarded starting at 11:00 PM.

The web apps will be evaluated according to technical complexity, user experience, social relevance, and originality. The panel of judges consists of seasoned gurus in the field of web application development.

It will be a battle of innovation and creativity, and a day full of fun and challenges!

And this competition will be judged by: Bryan Bibat and Miguel Paraz. Both are experts, and only the highest quality output shall be picked from these two awesome people!

What is WebGeek?

WebGeek is a community that acts as a venue for Filipino Geeks, Developers and Designers. A community in which we can all grow, thrive, and of course have a little fun along the way!

Learning by example is a wonderful way to receive the knowledge you need to advance yourself in whatever web endeavors you may aspire to. Receiving instruction from your peers can also be a much easier way to learn. It is often from like‐minded individuals that we can see things in each others work that others may miss.
