In a bid to empower the IT community and as a showcase of potential technological advancements in the country, Multisys Technologies Corporation, a one-stop provider for integrated software development and system solutions, staged its first Clash of Codes.
Over 200 programmers took the challenge of designing and coding an integrated e-commerce system that is powered by SMS features and connected to 1,800 billers and over 30,000 payment centers.
Three groups and three individuals emerged as winners of the competition. For the group category, Team Batibot (Rodette Pedro, Jayson Uy, and JR Respino) emerged as first place. They were followed by Team Foxtrot (Aldrin Bautista, Niño Eclarin, and Raven Lagrinas) at second place and Team Pocket Coder (Mcjover P. Dacanay, Marjorie L. Tiozon, and Danis Gabriel M. De Perio) at third place.
Winners for the individual category are: Alexie Madolid at first place, Mark Erwin Villarina at second place, and Trinmar Boado at third place. The first placers from both categories took home a cash prize of P100,000 each. The second and third placers received P50,000 and P30,000 respectively.
Multisys president and chief executive David Almirol emphasized the importance of initiatives that encourage the IT community to show off their ingenuity, such as Clash of Codes, as demand for sophisticated business processes continue to rise.
“The systems that our participants worked on were all impressive. Beyond being able to prove that the local IT community has the skills and talent to build effective programs from scratch, they were able to exhibit their passion in being able to create systems that make our daily tasks easier to accomplish. Clash of Codes was a true showcase of what Filipino IT talents can offer,” Mr. Almirol shared.
