After carrying out the days of the Mobile App Camp Madrid 2016, and evaluate all fantastic and innovative projects that were presented, we can already announce the three lucky winners who will receive their prize consistent on a trip to Skopje, Macedonia, with all expenses paid, for a three week stay in which they will be formed in a course of Apps. The Hackathon, held on 22 and 23 April brought together a group of young people under 33, divided in a multidisciplinary way (entrepreneurs, programmers, designers, artists, journalists, etc.) who developed their ideas focused on generating Social impact.
We can speak first of “Cuida2”. This is one of the selected Apps, whose purpose is, by using Bluetooth sensors, monitor the behavior of elderly or certain disability / disease people, thus enabling better attention and care. The second selected App is “Helping”, which, based on micro-volunteering actions, allows to connect with others willing to put solutions to everyday problems, all os this through a simple and intuitive design.
“Find me a Home” was the winning Apps, centered in this case in the abandoned animals. Within this App, shelter profiles can be found so you can contact them, as well as profiles of the animals that have been found and need a home.
In addition, one of these projects will participate in the EYA Winners event, November 30 to December 3 in Graz, Austria.
