Who we are
Philippine Web Designers Organization (PWDO) is a grassroots, non-profit organization that aims to uplift the local web design industry by championing professionalism & excellence in crafting interfaces for the Web.
To accomplish this, we volunteer our time & talents to organize conferences, meet-ups, hackathons, and workshops to sharpen the skills of Filipino web designers & developers, from students to professionals.
PWDO started in September 2008, because we wanted to have a web design conference in the country. We held the first MiniFFC meet-up by October, registered with the SEC as a non-stock, non-profit corporation in March, and on July 10th 2009 launched the first <form> function() & .class conference.
Since then we’ve done workshops, co-organized a Junior FFC for students, held a code camp on Ruby on Rails for Designers, and organized a pro-bono website building hackathon called Caritakathon. We have partnered with schools, student organizations, companies, startups, & other communities.
