a young team from pampanga technically just “hacked their way to Silicon Valley” winning the grand prize in the just concluded AngelHack Manila (leg).
besting around 250 fellow developers, the group comprised of the following IT PINOYs – Rolly Rulete, Raymund Delfin, Marvin Consuegra, Mio Galang, and Jay Albano (all working for Lifebit), developed Pagesnapp – a service that enables creation of mobile apps based on their official Facebook pages.
“It’s like a dream come true, yes,” said Rolly Rulete.
the team now will be included in the Silicon Valley Accelerator Program (for mentorship), be flown into San Francisco USA and get a chance to take home $100K in prizes.
