iPhone App Weekend Challenge – March 2010

This weekend, we here at ProOnGo are are holding an app developer’s challenge for Illinois Institute of Technology Master’s students to develop an iPhone application in one weekend.

The challenge, dubbed the iPhone App Weekend Challenge, calls upon IIT Master’s students to develop a full functioning iPhone in application in just 48 hours.  Last year’s Master’s students were able to design an app that showed attractions on the campus of IIT depending on the phone’s GPS location.

This year’s app will provide a live feed of what is going on around on the campus of IIT based on the GPS location.  For example, if the phone is by the radio station on campus, the app will show what songs the radio station is playing and what will be coming up next.

The challenge is focused on showcasing the skill set of IIT Master’s students for perspective employers as well providing mentorship and advice from the ProOnGo team about planning out and developing new iPhone applications.

This year’s challenge will take place from March 20-21st on the campus of IIT.  More information is available by visiting or by signing up here.  It is sponsored by the IIT Knapp Entrepreneurship Center and ProOnGo.
