Apps for Good has this year taught 22,987 students to solve problems in their schools and communities through a course encouraging structured thinking culminating with a solution to the problem in the form of software architecture, the blueprint of an app.
The course has taught 45,000 students over the past 4 years. Every course ends in a showcase of the student ideas winning teams being chosen. Each team gains public recognition of their app concept and then gains the chance for that app to be realised into a functioning app on an app store.
For the last 5 years putitout has been supporting Apps for good and has seen them grow in stature and relevance. Our CEO, Charlie was an expert in Apps for Good’s first year where they ran their pilot course in South London for just 10 students (see nostalgic video). We have been a partner of the charity and are building on that in 2015 by taking the position of official development partner for Apps for Good.
This will see us in 2015 working with 4 teams of students from around the country, understanding the vision and relevance behind their app concept and bringing their app to reality for a launch in early 2016.
We’re really excited to see who wins on Thursday evening and can’t wait to meet the teams to start the process on Friday.
You can see all the winners here and are excited to announce that we are now working with:
By January 2016 every one of these teams will have their app in the app store, we're delighted tio be working with each and every team, do take some time to look at their winning entries.
