The first edition of the Android App Festival, took place on May 11, at Palazzo Armao in Santo Stefano di Camastra (ME). A completely free event, dedicated to developers and to all the Android fans.
The Android App Festival is a contest organized by the four Sicilian Google Developer Group (Palermo, Catania, Nebrodi e Gela), with the purpose of spreading knowledge about developing technologies for devices based on Android operating system.
The rich program was split in two main parts: the first part was dedicated to the presentation of the 24 competing app, five slides in five minutes; the afternoon, on the contrary, was much more technical and it included alternating training sessions and seminars about technologies used for Android.
PUSH, represented by Angelo Marchesin, took part in the contest, winning the first place by submitting Palermo ONTour- an OpenData based app that schedules city tours accordingly to the time that any user has got.
A part from the great satisfaction for the victory, several awards were assigned, including a Google Nexus 7, an annual subscription to GitHub and 2 months as guests at the Working Capital Accelerator, in Catania.
Palermo onTour is already available for free on Play Store.
