About the AppJam
The AppJam was a 48 hour development challenge, to find new apps, new ideas, new designers and developers, who thrive under pressure. Participants had a mere 48 hours to come up with and develop their app concept, to the point where it could be presented to an audience of industry experts, developers and designers.
Part of the International App Development Conference (or AppCon), the AppJam took place during Dundee’s NEoN festival in November 2010.
The AppJam was free and open to 39 participants in total. Within a range of talents from students to industry professionals taking part!
Well it was open to, designers, developers, freaks, geeks, indies, coders, artists, producers, animators, writers, free software pioneers, entrepreneurs, directors and anyone with a passion to MAKE SOMETHING NEW.
The conference encouraged applications from any creative individuals or teams with some knowledge in the fields of the creative industries or software development.
The AppJam all about creation, knowledge transfer and commercialisation, created the opportunity for a wide mix of applicant to work with other like-minded individuals, to create a commercial prototype ready to market, through support and industry insight.
