Attention all students!  Ever wanted to develop a mobile application and have no idea where to start?  Well, Miami Dade College and Microsoft are here to help!  I have been working with Miami Dade College over the past month or so on scheduling a student hackathon, and it is now official!!  The 24 hour hackathon will take place from Saturday April 5th at 1:00pm to Sunday April 6th at 4:00pm. 

As a student, we don’t want you to feel like you have to have experience with computer science or mobile applications to be able to create an app and have fun.    I will be covering a couple of different tools that can be used by BEIGNNERS!  We want everyone to be able to get involved, and I will be on hand to help make this come true!

Lastly, I will be giving away a Nokia Lumia 920 Windows Phone as well as a Dell Venue 8.1 Pro Tablet for students that are focusing on the Microsoft platform!  Again, I will be on hand to help through this process.  Additionally, as a student if you publish a game or app to Windows 8 store before April 14th, you can earn $50 for each app you submit!  Just another incentive to keep in mind.

To be able to join in on this hackathon, you must register, Here.  Go ahead and sign up and I will see you soon!
