SkySwitch Sponsors a GDG DevFest in Bacolod


At SkySwitch, we value innovation and camaraderie—and at Bacolod’s DevFest this past weekend, over 100 participants experienced both.

DevFest is an initiative created by the global Google Developer’s Group (GDG). This year, the GDG community has hosted over 500 DevFests around the world in over 80 countries in an effort to learn, share and build new things together. Each DevFest brings together tech-savvy students and professional developers all within a local community to engage in coding sessions and other informative talks about Google and its products.

The GDG’s Bacolod City Chapter hosted their DevFest on November 24th, 2018, and SkySwitch was proud to be a gold sponsor of the event in continued support of students, local developers and the IT community. The city of Bacolod, also known as the Philippines’ City of Smiles, is home to our Service Delivery Center that includes Technical Support, LNP and Software Development teams.

In addition to sponsoring the event, some of our SkySwitch developers were there to showcase our unique technologies. A couple demonstrations included overviews that explained the capabilities of Sallie the SMS bot and the benefits of using our ReachUC integration.

We had a great time supporting this group of forward-thinking individuals and look forward to seeing what next year’s DevFest will have in store!
