TriV Teens Win Best Overall App At AT&T Mobile App Hackathon
Ethan and Pulkit entered the AT&T Public Safety Mobile App Hackathon over the two days of December 12 and 13, 2014. Attendees gathered to build apps to benefit public safety agency missions.
Victoria, Ethan’s mother, had this to say about the event:
I thought you may like to know that Ethan and Pulkit did extremely well at the AT&T Mobile App Hackathon in Palo Alto, CA this weekend. They won best overall app and best use of the AT&T WebRTC API. They were the only teens who qualified to compete and held their own. Dept. of Homeland Security are interested in them building it out further… How busy and motivated can you get at 13 and 14?Their win is a direct reflection on your club. Pulkit and Ethan met at your Coderdojo. They brainstorm there. Ethan was introduced to WebRTC through a presentation at Veeva – because of your Coderdojo. They are so motivated because Coderdojo has given them the confidence, determination and place to create etc. Thank you.
Kudos to Ethan and Pulkit on their second win. They received their first win at CodeDay San Francisco earlier in the year. Ethan and Pulkit, thank YOU for helping TriV realize our goal of helping to motivate kids to engage and learn about tech and take their skills to the next level!
