Lumia Hackathon…The South African way

The Lumia hackathon which took place in 4 South African cities has come and gone but the memories will last for a long period

The hackathon was open to students from different institutions in Port Elizabeth,Durban,Cape Town and Gauteng. I managed to take part in the one that was hosted in Johannesburg and must say the experience was awesome,tooooooooooooooonice,amazing,fun,priceless and tiring

Over a period of 48hours students would brainstorm ideas and started developing apps for the Windows Phone platform with the winners being selected on the last day after all apps got evaluated

Students even managed to submit apps into the Windows Phone Marketplace

I will give you more details as the week goes on who the winners were,what they developed,and highlight some of the cool apps I saw…
