Mr. Ren Joshua Ramirez, VP for Marketing, giving his opening remarks.


Aspiring new iOS developers consisted of 30 IT professionals and enthusiasts attended the 4th DevCon iOSCodeCamp last May 3, 2014 held at co.lab. With their Macbooks loaded with Xcode and their hearts filled with enthusiasm. 


Ms Andrea Levinge, Resource Speaker, Discussing about Inheritance and Overloading

The event kickstarted with an introduction about DevCon and its upcoming events by Mr Rj Ramirez followed by a presentation of KC Coling of co.lab thereafter the resource speaker Ms. Andrea Levinge was introduced and gave a background about her co-founded  WhiteWidget a software/app development company.


As (almost) a tradition by programmers who are learning a new programming syntax/ language the “Hello World” was the very first program the participants made. Learning a new programming language and platform has been challenging for most of the participants but with the help of their co-participants, the DevCon staff and Ms.Andrea it became more interesting and fun.


Followed by a discussion on Object-Oriented Programming architecture/paradigm, obviously Java developers have the edge and fast understanding of the discussion. During the afternoon the UIkit and memory management were discussed.

After all the elaboration the participants took a mini hackathon challenge and won by the the first three participants who finished their calculator app namely Mr. Kristhoffer Ferranco, Mr. Lawrence Salvador and Mr. Eliric Rivera. Some participants still continued in finishing their app.
