Smart Communications shows its love for the local development scene by backing the recent Developer Connect Philippines Summit 2016 (DevCon Summit 2016) at the SMX Convention Center. This conevention provides relevant information and resources to the growing developer community in the Philippines. In fact, it’s dubbed as the country’s biggest developer conference, and ‘Dev Future Forward’ saw participation from more than 1,500 developers, students, and IT industry leaders.
The two-day conference featured talks and panel discussions on various topics. These include: The State of the Philippine Programming Talent, Developing Augmented Reality Apps, and Best Practice in Software Development. But aside from providing venues for innovation, Smart also provides training and equipment to partner educational institutions.
During the conference, Voyager Innovations and PayMaya Philippines showcased its growing suite of APIs for developers. These include APIs for PayMaya Checkout and PayMaya vault, as well as the Chikka API. This allows developers to create and integrate SMS-based platforms.
I believe our developers as young as they are, can actually be the future in building this nation. Their technical know-how is very much vital in creating the products that can actually change or make a dent in the society, that’s why we at Voyager supports the DevCon,
