6.570 is MIT's first Mobile Development Competition. Teams of 2-3 students will have 4 weeks to design and build an Android application that will make MIT's student life easier and more convenient. The first two weeks of the competition will consist of lectures given both by students and leading industry experts, covering the basics of Android development, as well as other relevant concepts and tools, to help the participants build great apps. The contest will culminate in a public presentation by all teams in front of a judging panel comprised of MIT faculty and professional developers. Great prizes and everlasting fame will be awarded to the first champions of 6.570!
By the first day of classes in 6.570, we require all students who wish to continue with the class to group to form teams of 2-3 people. Smaller and larger teams will not be allowed.
If you would like to find someone to join your team, or find a team to join, then you can use our forums, to make posts about making and joining teams.
As part of 6.570, we are providing a discussion board for students taking the class to use. At this stage, the forums are mainly provided to allow students without teams, or looking to expand their teams, to connect with others taking the class and make these arrangements, before the first day of classes.
The discussion board is an “experimental feature” of 6.570, and we may have other uses for it during the competition.
More information about the competition will come soon. In the meantime, if you have any questions about 6.570, please do not hestiate to contact the organizers at email@example.com.
