The Manila Dev Challenge is a coding competition organized by Freelancer.com, one of the largest outsourcing and crowdsourcing marketplace in the world.
The Manila Dev Challenge started on June 2013 in The Philippines, where more than 1000 Filipino developers across the country qualified.
Then, only 40 of them were chosen to take part in the final event, which took place on July 20th.
After six hours of intense coding, Bryan Zarzuela from Pilipinas Teleserv was granted to be the champion, rewarded by a cash prize of P100,000 (around $2,300) !
The second place was assigned to Kevin Charles Atienza from Kalibrr, with a cash prize of P40,000.
The jury chose Marte Soliza from Insync for the third place, and Johan Sten for the fourth place whom respectively won P20,00 and P15,000.
The jury decided to award two of the participants in a special way : Tim Joseph Dumol from Kalibrr won the special award of “The Best Performance in Preliminaries”, and Joseph Emmanuel Dayo from Friendster “The Best Solution for the Hardest Question”.
At Geeks in Cambodia we can’t wait to see competitions of that kind growing in Cambodia, as we’re strongly convinced they can bring a lot of value to the local tech scene.
Thanks to John from WebGeek.ph we’re able to discover cool tech events of that kind !
