6th March 2017
Join us for the CoderDojo Coolest Projects APPATHON!
Saturday 25th March 2017, from 10am to 8pm (food/refreshments will be provided).
This year we are developing a digital treasure hunt for attendees of CoderDojo Coolest Projects which takes place in the RDS, Dublin on Saturday 17th June 2017. We want to place bluetooth wireless beacons in different locations at the event for attendees to find using an app specifically developed for the treasure hunt. These beacons will be picked up by the app based on proximity. By using the app and finding the beacons you will collect points! Learn about what these points can be used for at the Coolest Projects in June!
We have the beacons! Now, we need your help to build the app!
Together with Travelport Digital we are hosting an Appathon (like a Hackathon but for Apps) on Saturday 25th March to build it and we are looking for app developers of all ages, young and old to get involved! In particular if you have UI, design skills, experience building iOS apps using Swift or Android apps using Java; or developing games with Unity we would really appreciate your support on the day!
Applications are open to CoderDojo Community Members including mentors, parents, youth members aged 13 – 17 with relevant experience and any app developers who also want to get involved.
Food & refreshments will be provided. There will be limited space on the day so register asap!
