Leechers start your engines, the ROOTCON media server is now live!

The relics of the conference is a living proof how our event evolved throughout the years.

ROOTCON 11 Venue
Posted on: 03.06.17

At ROOTCON we always aim for perfection, aside from our high-caliber tracks the ROOTCON is a critical part of the event, moving from one place to another does not guarantee perfection of the event, so with that said you've noticed that we don't change venue every year, cuz we want it to be perfect before dealing with another logistics problem. With that said ROOTCON this year will be back at Taal Vista Hotel in Tagaytay for ROOTCON11.

Why not Metro Manila? To answer that question, ROOTCON is a fun less formal conference and we want our con-goers to feel like they're just on vacation and having fun while learning.

Aside from the date, we usually announce the venue as early as possible, this is for our con-goers to plan ahead.

Some pro-tips
1. If you are going to ROOTCON on personal expense start saving, scout some hotels, invite some friends for ride and room sharing.

2. If you feel like management will be sending you to ROOTCON get that management approval now! company budget runs-out pretty fast =)
