Insights is DevCup 2014's Official Theme

DevCup 2014 Officially started today at the Meralco Multi-Purpose Hall in Ortigas. This is a two-day hackathon event made to highlight developers in creating an app that can be put to daily use.

A hackathon like DevCup is an avenue for Developers to showcase not only their skills in coding and building a great app, but also enhances their creativity in putting the end-product into good use. DevCup by WebGeek Philippines is different in a sense that it doesn't need to be limited. The theme was set to help the participants have a goal that is in uniform with their rival teams, but shouts out their own style and how they vision it their geeky minds so to speak.

DevCup 2014 Day 1

At the course of each participants can enjoy breaks by taking lunch and dinner at the venue. A good time to stretch, charge their brains or mingle with their fellow participants. To keep the boost, free-flowing booze was provided, all they need to do is fill-up the red cup.

To sum up the first day of DevCup, it was a busy day for everyone, and a productive day too. It seems that majority of the teams already got the concept of what the theme(Insights) is about. The actual challenge is how they are going to put their knowledge and expertise into good use, producing an app that is inline with the given theme, plus making the judges understand what they just built, is what it really is.
