Suffolk County Council calls for mobile app developers

Suffolk County Council is holding a ‘mobile hack day’ at the end of the month as a way to generate ideas for new mobile apps it could develop to help improve council services.

The council recently purchased a mobile app publishing platform, Weejot, from web experience management SME Jadu, from the government’s G-Cloud Cloudstore. The council hopes to develop its capability to respond to customer demand for accessing services via mobile devices.

The mobile hack day will use the Weejot mobile app publishing network.

To join the free event, developers need to have skills in HTML, JavaScript and an understanding of web service APIs. They will also need to bring their own laptop. Wi-Fi connectivity will be available.

Food and refreshments will be provided throughout the day, and the most innovative apps developed on the day will receive an Apple iPad, iPod touch or iPod nano.

The event will be held at Suffolk County Council’s The Atrium site in Ipswich. Although initially aimed at student studying the mobile app development course at a local college, any mobile app developers are also invited to attend the event.
