About the Event
The 48-Hour Mobile Apps Hackathon has become a tradition at Michigan. Organized by Prof. Elliot Soloway and sponsored this year by Walmart, this is an incredible opportunity for students interested in any aspect of mobile app development. The Hackathon will give you the time, space, food, caffeine, teammates, and camaraderie you need to build an app for ANY mobile platform -- in a weekend!
ALL U-M students are invited to participate. Come if you have an idea for idea for a mobile app; come if you don't have an idea for a mobile app; come with a team; come without a team. Come if you have experience developing mobile apps; come if you don't have experience developing mobile apps.
Here's how it works: everybody who has an idea makes a 45 second pitch. Then we form teams. Everybody will be on a team; everybody will build a mobile app.
As one student who participated in a previous Hackathon put it: "I learned more in 48 hours than I learned all semester." You will indeed learn a great deal about mobile app development and about yourself!
