<aside> 💻 Interested in tech or want to get a better sense of what's in the Philippine student startup ecosystem? Here's a little highlight reel of the best communities, resources, and programs you should know about as a student in tech.

Three years ago as a high school senior in Cavite, I wrote "A Guide to CS in High School (PH Edition)". Written a bit over a year after Developh (then Developers' Society) launched, I had so much to learn and absorb about the tech scene. Now, I've delved quite a bit into the startup industry and wanted to compile some of the most meaningful resources and spaces I've been a part of over the years. Community, discovery, and the uninhibited room to explore and grow have been vital to my own growth — and will be for any future technologist as well.
