Nokia and Microsoft Join Forces to Empower Local Talent with The Midnight Developer Challenge
Nokia and Microsoft are challenging university students in the Middle East and Africa to come up with the next big mobile app idea through ‘The Midnight Developer Challenge’ – its first and the region’s biggest ever student app development competition. Registration for the competition is currently ongoing until December 15th, with hundreds of students from over 25 countries participating. The competition is aimed at providing students with exposure and training in the latest mobile and app development technologies.
“It’s a fantastic opportunity for students to get real life experience in designing, developing and distributing a mobile app for consumers in an emerging app economy,” said Joe Devassy, Head of Developer Experience, Nokia IMEA. “We designed this competition to maximise the learning process of this entrepreneurial journey – that is, how to go from an abstract idea to a fully-developed Windows Phone 8 app available to millions of consumers worldwide.”
