A great success at codecamping in Lappeenranta

Students in the Lappeenranta University of Technology participated in the Windows Phone 7 Code Camp intensive course, in which student teams first learn about a platform and then during a single week make a program that follows a chosen theme. In the final day, the students present their programs, learn solutions from each other and compete for the title of best program. The Code Camp course series has shown that one learns best by doing and a good team can achieve excellent results even in a short time.

The winning team made a library search application for Helsinki area’s library network, which helps to find the nearest library which has the desired book. The team is going to develop the application further and eventually publish it in the Windows Phone Marketplace.
