COMSOC members were invited in the convention, entitled "IN2Tion: Into IT Convention 2018" The convention was on March 2, 2018 and was held at the Villar Social Institute for Poverty Alleviation and Governance (SIPAG) Center. There were 9 speakers that talked about different things that has connections with Computer technology, these were the list of the speakers and their topics: Mr. Kevin Brian Valmonte - Introducing the world of game development, Ms. Michie Ang - iOS Development using Swift Programming, Mr. Eugene Tay - Business Processes, Mr. Rodel Urani - Internet of Things, Mr. Robert "Bob" Reyes - Mozilla & Rust Programming Language, Engr.

I would just like to point out the topic that most COMSOC attendees have had a lot of interest with which was the "Mozilla & Rust Programming Language" that was brilliantly expressed and talked about by Mr. Robert "Bob" Reyes. One of the information given by the speaker is that there are Filipinos who have contributed in the development of Mozilla and their names are engraved in the Mozilla Monument in San Francisco which is one of the things that you can be proud being a Filipino.
In2ITion is one of the longest seminar that ComSoc members have ever attended, even though it is long and tiring, the seminar was knowledgeable and even gives nifty encouragement to ComSoc members that leads them to dream further, it’s not only that, they also prepared raffle prizes for lucky attendees that made the event even livelier and enjoyable. There will be an in2ITion 2019 convention next year, come and join!
