Bicol IT

Bicol Information Technology Organization is a community of IT Professionals, Students, Educators, and enthusiasts who are from and are in the Bicol Region, Philippines. Our primary objective is to share our expertise, conduct regular meetups in Legazpi City, Metro Manila and hopefully soon in Naga City and the rest of the region.

We conduct regular technology talks for free for students and professionals to augment the training needs and expose others to the latest trends in information technology.

This group aims:

- Empower IT Bicolanos by giving free tech talks/conferences
- Promote start-up culture/hackathons/mentorship/volunteerism/camaraderie
- Collaboration of different IT schools and members in the whole region
- Showcase the Apps/IT projects created by Bicolanos
- Make Bicol Region as venue of International/National Tech Events and as Silicon Valley of South Luzon
