About the Event
The 48-Hour Mobile Apps Hackathon, organized by Prof. Elliot Soloway, has become a tradition at Michigan. 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!
