Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) June 03, 2011
Calling all do-gooders and big thinkers. Big Nerd Ranch is looking for an impressive iOS mobile app idea that will benefit a worthy non-profit, Big Nerd Ranch style. That is to say, the team will help the winner make the world better through a powerful combination of killer idea, mobile technology and their best-in-class teachers and Nerds.
It's called the inaugural Big Nerd Ranch Mobile for Global Good Contest. And, anyone interested just needs to submit their iOS mobile app idea to bignerdranch.com/mobileforglobalgood. Previous technical or programming experience is not needed. Entries will be accepted June 7-24.
“The potential of mobile technology to make lives better is immense,” said Aaron Hillegass, Founder and CEO of Big Nerd Ranch. “That’s what’s most exciting about the Mobile for Global Good Contest – coupling unlimited human innovation with technology to make the world better.”
It’s an awesome prize package
Big Nerd Ranch will bring the winner to Atlanta, all expenses paid, to attend one of its weeklong iOS mobile app development retreats. Then, he or she will spend another week with the Nerds in intense one-on-one mentoring sessions to finalize the app and get it loaded onto iTunes.
Possibly the most valuable part of the prize package, however, is learning how to develop an iOS mobile app – a sought-after skill that will continue to grow in demand.
How the winning idea will be selected
A panel of expert judges will pick the best idea based on creativity and innovation, feasibility and the idea’s impact. For impact, it's quality not quantity. The winner will be named the week of July 11.
It’s really that easy to earn a prize that keeps on giving.
