One of those squads — Dawn Milnamow, Gregory Furlong, Alex Brown, Wayne Hansen and Gabriel Humphrey — are building an app for TEDxWilmington, taking place at The Queen at the end of the month.
They started working on the app almost immediately after meeting TEDxWilmington organizers Ajit George and Rhianon Hussman at September’s Delaware Tech Meetup. Hook had put out a call at the event for local organizations to take advantage of the students’ flashy new programming chops, and TEDxWilmington organizers listened.
Led by Hansen, the students built an event app that shows users the current list of speakers, various places to catch a bite around Wilmington and the YouTube videos TEDxWilmington currently has on its channel. The app will launch in Apple and Android stores next week. The best part? It’s recyclable.
“There’s no reason this should just be for this conference,” said Furlong. “This is something [TEDxWilmington] can reuse in the future.”-30-
