B. Cost and Advocacy: Masterclass or whole day I.T. workshops cost a lot of money - thousands of pesos. Aside from that, add the miscellaneous expenses like food, accommodation, and transportation since most of these events are always held in the Metro. With ITMG’s advocacy, PITCON’s ticket prices are minimized without sacrificing the fun and learning experience for each participant.
C. Community: It is proven that the areas with active I.T. community are also the same areas with better I.T. skills and performance. That is because of the initiatives like Code Camps, Hackathons, etc. that are very easy to reach. Supporting PITCON is the same as supporting ITMG to grow and provide more and better events for the benefit of not only the students but also to the local community as well.
D. Get the Skills: In-line to the core values of ITMG, PITCON is a series of topics that are very much timely to help the students enter the I.T. industry based on what is standard and needed. Effectivity is our goal that is why instead of the traditional conference setup, PITCON presents a whole day workshop with student output and interaction. That will ensure us that after each event day, students will have a basic knowledge on some of the skills needed to enter the I.T. industry.
