Facebook groups in the Philippines for I.T professionals and students

Facebook group is one of the best way to level up your technical skills. I’ve been also using them to keep me engage and up to date with the local tech community here in the Philippines, or just to reach out fellow developers. Some groups offers seminars (some are free) that every Pinoy tech enthusiasts should utilize.

Here are some recommendation – in which some of these i personally attended.

This group is all about Javascript, Node.Js, Angular.Js, React.Js – name it, they know it.They have monthly events which is held in Manila – before going, i suggest to have at least a basic idea about the topic or framework that they will discuss in the event.

Of course you can ask about JQuery – but be ready for a death stare (kidding).

Laravel Philippines

PADC are specific for Android Development. I once attended their bootcamp for Android development and i learned it pretty fast than studying it alone. Not sure if they are still conducting seminars like this. But be sure to checkout this group if you are into Android development.
