Microsoft Innovation Centre (MIC) Nepal Will Conduct Phone Apps Development Factory

***Here is your chance to learn Developing Apps in 5 days***

-         Over one third of Nepal’s population has phones
-         Of the over 16% of the population that has Internet, only 1% has other forms of internet, for the rest it is Internet on their phones.
-         In less than 2 years, all software will be on phones and tablet PCs.

MIC Nepal is going to conduct a five day Phone Apps Development Factory whereby you can convert your idea to an app and upload it within this 5 day period.

After having successfully conducted a number of such camps, we have had about 20 apps already uploaded to the Marketplace and hope to have about 80 apps by December end. These were all from people that had no previous experience or knowledge about software development.
