Appy 3rd Anniversary GDG Baguio!

Today marks our 3rd anniversary GDG Baguio! Appy birthday to us!

In the span of 3 years, we have organized 47 events reaching out 2434 participants across Baguio and nearby areas. In the future, we aim to reach out to other places up North including Nueva Ecija, Tuguegarao, La Union and other provinces.

Together we hacked codes, shared ideas, learn on Google Technologies, and ate pizza!

Aside from the awesome ideas, learning, and technology on Google Technologies, we have seen new community partnerships and camaraderie grow both among the members and community partners alike.
