I am a 27 year old computer science engineering graduate who would like to take you through my Android Experience.
As a mainframe engineer, its difficult to spend time in another new tech which hasn't been a part in college.
Somehow, my decision was made clear that I would need to learn. Since there are no opportunities, I decided to create one for myself. I choose hackathon competition.
Hackathon - Tesco Challenge
We took a concept and decided to use Android mobile application. It was just before 2 days, of competition start where I was able to setup the software and build hello world application. This gave the confidence to my team that we could not disappoint judges. We came 5th in HSC but our concept won globathon 2014.
Whats the Technical Catch?
Joining hackathon was just a start of my Android learning. It was a beginners work which was done to get basic hands on. I decided to take my skills to next level.
