Last March 9, 2013, GDG Philippines organized the first-ever DevFestW Philippines in Globe Corporate Showroom, Valero Telepark, Makati City.
More than the really cute and delicious cupcakes and line of Google product tarps, the event was filled with excitement and inspiration as our speakers share their experiences about the industry and their respective expertise.

The event started with a welcome video message from Stephanie Liu and Adriana Cerundulo explaining what DevFestW aims to achieve.
This was followed by a welcome from GDG Bacolod's community manager Anne Olvido.
