The first ever Student Android App Development Contest was hosted by the Open IT Lab, IT-oLogy and the University of South Carolina on Saturday, November 17. It was a tremendous success with more than 10 teams competing from across South Carolina.
This was the first Android application development contest exclusively for students in the state of South Carolina. Teams from the University of South Carolina, Clemson University, and various high schools entered and demonstrated applications of all types. SCANA, RhythmLink, and Blue Acorn from Charleston were sponsors and made it possible.
