Mobile Phone app challenge

Mobile computing is fast becoming a ubiquitous in our world, just look around this conference and see how people use their smart devices. To this end I have had a long interest in teaching students how to develop applications for these mobile platforms.

Late last year I was asked to take on our flailing IST course and to make it more relevant to the students and to get away from textbook based idiom which had been previously used. This is where the Mobile Phone app challenge came from
