Students from GMIT and NUI Galway try out the Annoying Mosquito game
On 13 March, CodeNinja - an app development competition for third-level students in Galway - came to its conclusion with three prizes awarded to student teams from GMIT and NUI Galway. Through a series of workshops, CodeNinja gave students the skills and knowledge required to create their own innovative web or mobile apps. The competition was designed by local businesses and academics to train and encourage students to be creative in the cultivation of their own technology ideas, and was supported by Microsoft Ireland, GitHub, OnePageCRM, Ex Ordo, and the VP for Innovation and Performance at NUI Galway.
The winning entry was the “Annoying Mosquito” app developed by Chengxuan Xing and Adeel Gilani, both final year software development students at GMIT.
