APCA, CIE and AT&T Developer's Program Host Hackathon for Students
Exposing High School Kids to Mobile App Creation
APCA, CIE-Seattle (Chinese Institute of Engineers – Seattle) and AT&T Developer's Program hosted the first Mobile App Hackathon for High School Students. This event was produced by the AT&T Developer Program and designed especially for students in high school (grades 9-12 or beyond high school) to learn the basics about making mobile applications across a variety of mobile smartphones. The Hackathon introduced students to the latest cutting edge tools to help deploy an app with a website backend, fully hosted in the cloud. There was live developer support from local senior developers from AT&T, Sencha, and Apigee to help students of all levels. Students interacted with professional mobile app developers and learned about careers in the mobile app industry.
