Mobile Apps Development 2014
For the third consecutive year, Applied Computing students taking the Mobile Applications Development module at the University of Buckingham will present the apps they are developing. This module introduces students to the technical and programming concepts involved in the creation of Apps for smart phones. In addition to these apps, a selection of final-year student projects will be demonstrated on the day.
The event will begin with an overview of the Mobile Applications Development module – the progress since last year – and will conclude with a presentation of the new BSc CSE programme followed by a road map for the next few years.
The Bedford BCS will also present its annual award to the most promising student.
As in the previous two years, software engineers, technology entrepreneurs, employers, and business leaders are invited to attend the student presentations and demo sessions. Engagement with external participants has been very well received in the past by students and staff alike. To register, click here.
