Students and faculty members of Gordon College CCS attended the 16th Youth Congress in IT Education held last September 25, 2018 at UP Diliman, Quezon City. Established in 2003, the Youth Congress on Information Technology — commonly known as Y4iT— is an annual information technology event in the Philippines.  Aimed primarily at college students, professionals, educators, IT experts and enthusiasts, Y4iT is an enabling event for today’s youth and aspires to recognize young Filipinos as key drivers in the dynamic IT industry. Since its launching, Y4iT has gone on to be at the forefront of information technology gathering events in the Philippines.

As part of the program during the event, a group of GC CCS alumni were invited to present their Thesis project entitled: “Buko (BuhayKomyuter): A Cross-Platform Application for Public Commuters’ Feedbacks and Reviews for PUVs using Sentiment Analysis Algorithm”. Team BuKo comprised of Mr. John Ray Guerra, Mr. Joshua Pasol and Ms. Jolyn Pingal, presented their project during the 2nd day of Y4IT witnesses by IT students and professionals from all over the country. 

BuKo won the Best Paper (Computer Science Category) during the 4th Y4IT Researh Summit 2018 and awarded as one of the Top 10 finalist in the 14th Smart Sweep Innovation and Excellence Awards.
