The Philippine Web Designers Organization (PWDO) is a non-stock, non-profit organization that aims to strengthen the community, champion excellence in crafting web user interfaces, and uplift the state of web design in the
Philippines. We organize events & meet-ups to educate and sharpen the skills and professionalism of Filipino web designers and developers.
PWDO started in September 2008, when several of us gathered because we wanted to have a web design conference in the Philippines. We held the first MiniFFC by the end of October, registered with the SEC as a non-stock, non-profit corporation in March the following year, and on July 10, 2009, held the first Form Function & Class conference.
Since then we've expanded our annual conference format to include workshops, created a Junior FFC for students, a Rails for Designers Workshop, and a pro-bono site building hackathon Caritakathon that benefits non-profit organizations and charities.
