The University of the Philippines Programming Guild (UPPG) is a University-based non-political and non-sectarian organization which aims to gather students who enjoy solving problems and train them to use it for real world applications.




The Quiwarriors

The Quiwarriors are the members of the Guild who are trained to compete in programming competitions. They receive training in graph theory, number theory, combinatorics, discrete mathematics and computational geometry among other topics. The Guild aims to keep producing the Philippines’ champions and win in the World Finals of the Association for Computing Machinery Intercollegiate Programming Contest (ACM ICPC), a world-renowned international programming competition.

The Quiwarriors trace their roots from the teams coached by Eric Tambasacan, then a faculty of the Department of Computer Science, for the 2007 and 2008 National Intercollegiate Programming Contests. The need for the skills of people outside of the department was apparent and so the idea for a university-wide organization was born. The first Guild teams competed in the 2009 Asia Regional ICPC – Manila Site, where the Guild’s team 1, “Mga SOGO ni E.T.”, placed 1st and became the first University of the Philippines Diliman team to advance to the World Finals.

The Guild is always on the look out for those who are eager to learn and who have a passion for problem solving.

The Qode Weavers

The Qode Weavers are the members of the Guild who develop useful innovative applications. They are knowledgeable in different programming languages such as C, C+, C++, C#, Java, PHP, Python, Ruby, Lisp, etc.

They are involved in making websites, developing games,software projects and databases as needed. One of their more popular projects is the Bukluran system, a computerized organization renewal website, which has received numerous praises from its users.

As long as there are projects waiting to be done in your neighborhood, who you gonna call? Qode Weavers.

Bukluran is the University of the Philippine’s online registration system for student organizations. It is being developed with the goal of eventually fully digitizing the process of org registration. The system aims to make the registration process easier for both the organizations and the Office of Student Activities (OSA).

Development of Bukluran was started in 2008 by a group of Computer Science majors as a requirement for their Software Engineering class. That group of Computer Science majors eventually became part of the first batch of Qode Weavers. The Guild has since taken up the task of developing and maintaining Bukluran as a service to the University.
