    The Ideas of March

    The Next Killer App?

    The Ideas of MarchIt’s innovative, intense and for those who thrive on creative competition, a shot at fame and fortune.

    It’s the “Ideas of March,” a 54-hour Android Development Camp and Competition, open to college students and software professionals from the tri-county area who are interested in producing mobile apps.

    Non-profits, small businesses, and government agencies are encouraged to submit ideas for apps that would benefit their organizations.

    The event, which kicks off on March 15, is sponsored by the Institute for Innovation and Economic Development at CSU Monterey Bay, the Monterey County Business Council and the university’s School of Information Technology and Communication Design, supported by organizations in the Monterey Bay area and Silicon Valley.

    “The ‘Ideas of March’ will showcase the technical talent in our local colleges and universities while assisting our non-profit and small business community as they gain new marketing tools for the 21st century,” says Monterey County Business Council President Mary Ann Leffel.

    Participants don’t need to know Android programming; a two-hour boot camp will be provided on the first day. However, basic programming knowledge is required and experience with Java is helpful.

    Teams will build their applications throughout the weekend, then present their work – real, working apps – on the evening of March 17, with winners chosen in several categories.

    There is no cost to participate, but prospective participants must apply by March 1. Food and beverages will be provided during event hours.

    Prospective competitors should note that all code created during the competition will be open source and will be posted on the web.
