Code Challenge 2013

The Code Challenge is a set of programming competitions that will be organized for the launching of the Ebène Accelerator on the 6-7 July 2013 at Orange Tower, Ebène - within the premises of the Ebène Accelerator.

This was in two parts; the Mobile App development where Participants will need to create a mobile application during a 24-hour time span and the problem solving contest which consisted of solving logical, algorithmic and mathematical problems during two 5-hour spans.

Our team participated in the Mobile App contest. Below are some key highlights of the event.

This was really challenging as in 24-hr we had to brainstorm, make a concept and code the App.
To deal with this, we spent like 3 hours to brainstorm and put all the ideas together, Once done, we share the tasks among the team members and started developing the project in a team.

Being fan of the Scrum methodology, we used this approach for the challenge, where we shared tasks and showed progress of the work at regular intervals, resolved issues that arise collectively and improve.


Besides the programming part, what was great about this event was the networking opportunity. Not only networking with other developers, but also executives of companies. This really "bridged the gap" between geeks and business people.

Was also fun time with friends and colleagues. Staying 24-Hour with them coding and joking..amazing experience. Another good point was the food! Great food - amazing!     



We designed and developed an App called "MauBis".
The main aim of the app is to help people track their bus on a map so that they don;t miss it.
The App also has other features such as accident news.
Below are some snapshots of the App.



The event went well and was a big success. Looking forward to the next challenge! :)
