Manila Dev Challenge for Genius Developers!

Wednesday, July 17, 2013 Stef dela Cruz 0 Comments

Okay, I know I’m a geek – and I’m also a nerd (and yes, in case you’re wondering, they’re different) – but I’m not geeky enough to join the Manila Dev Challenge this July 20, 2013.

Sad. If only I could program my way out of a red traffic light. Man, that ought to be sweet.

Anyhow, if you think you deserve groupies for being a (closet) genius developer, here’s your chance! Oh, and if you win, there’s like PhP200,000 worth of prizes.

Yeah, I know. Like I said, it’s sad that I’m not good enough for this contest. But for someone like you who is, here’s how you can win all that money.

Manila Dev Challenge: Computer Geeks, Here You Go!

They say geeks will rule the world. Um, hello, I think we already do!

If your enemies and haters still don’t believe you’re better than they are simply because you’re a geek and they’re not, then here’s your chance to prove them wrong once and for all! Okay, that’s too much drama, but I can’t resist sounding like a telenovela there for a moment.

So Michael from WebGeek contacted me a few weeks back to ask me if I may share this piece of news with my readers. I thought, why not? If it’s for the betterment of the tech community, I don’t mind!

The best developers in the country will bring home PhP200,000 at the Manila Dev Challenge. Wow, I better brush up on my Javascript!

Bring your geek skills to the Manila Dev Challenge as you go against fellow geeks in an initial bout of software development knowledge face-off. In the final round, there will be more complicated problem-solving and yes, even the implementation of – gulp – algorithms!

I’m sure you’re frothing in the mouth from all the trigger words I just said there. Don’t resist the urge; join it already! It’s three days away and you’re running out of time.

If you win, let me know and I’ll brag about you on my blog. Of course, you should give me your compulsory balato. It’s just about fair, what with you winning all the cash while I’m still here, dirt-poor and having the time of my life.

Okay, maybe my life ain’t that bad. But still, good luck to all of you Pinoy developers! Make me proud!
