We held our final event on Aug 2nd and had great turnout: the audience included friends, family, faculty members, industry, investors, and many enthusiastic students. We received funding from Smart/IdeaSpace, UP and Ayala Foundation for the food and the room able to accomodate 100 people at the UP - AyalaLand TechnoHub. 

On Friday Aug 3rd, the instructors had lunch with the Dean of Computer Science of UP Diliman. We discussed some of highlights of the course and some of the points of improvement for next year. We've received very positive feedback from the Dean, who looks forward to hosting AITI again next year.

On Saturday Aug 4th, we were invited by the Google Developers Group of the Philippines to join one of the biggest event of the year for local startups, the Google Dev Fest. Oshani held a workshop in the main room on Android development, and two of our teams presented their work to the audience.

We are now looking forward to returning to Massachussetts with the conviction that the Philippines has trumendous talent and has the potential to be a place of choice to start tech companies in Southeast Asia.
