About the Event
Aspiring game developer? Software Engineer? Startup CEO? Or maybe just looking for the right thing for you?
This coming September, UP CURSOR presents the Computer Science Summit 4.0 (CSS), an avenue for young minds to collaborate, develop skills, and build new connections in the field of Computer Science. Prepare for a jam-packed two-day event filled with speakers and workshops hosted by over 15 companies, both startup and corporate, from all over the industry.
The much-awaited annual event will take place on September 14-15, 2019 (Saturday - Sunday) at The University of the Philippines Diliman, Institute of Civil Engineering (UPD - ICE).
CSS 4.0 is a two-day tech event, ideathon, and pitching competition targeted, but not limited to Computer Science and Information Technology (CS/IT) college students. UP CURSOR aims to have this event serve as the pioneer avenue for students to learn, engage in healthy discourse, and build new connections within the tech community, both with tech professionals and fellow students.
From seasoned developers to students just starting to learn how to code, this event has something for everyone interested in the Computer Science field. The first day will focus on imparting knowledge, letting participants choose among several technical skills and soft skills workshops. The tech skills include Game Development, Machine Learning, Computer Security, Virtual Reality (VR), and Block-chain Technology among others, while the soft skills cover topics such as Problem Formulation and Solving, Web Deployment, UX, and Agile. Attendees will also be able to get up close and personal with the representatives from different companies through the mixer and mentorship portions.
All second day attendees will get the chance to apply what they learned on the first day. This will be through the Ideathon, an avenue for participants to form teams, bond, brainstorm, and battle it out with other teams in an idea pitching competition. Contestants should be sure to use their knowledge from both the soft skills and technical workshops, as there is over Php 10,000, along with other exclusive prizes from our sponsors, waiting for the winners!
