Community Apps Hackathon

Microsoft App Camp and Hackathon

Jun 5, 2013

Lafayettech, Microsoft and several groups at Purdue are offering to teach anyone how to build a computer app. There’s no cost for the camp, which is set for Thursday night on campus.

Lafayettech President Mikel Berger says that will be an information session and allow for the sharing of ideas.

“We’re really targeting people who wouldn’t call themselves software developers. They might have an idea for an app. They’re curious about how apps are written. So, we’re going to be showing some pretty basic tools that they can get started.”
