We Championed the Gamification Hackathon 2015!

Here’s another good news to share! 

Our team of APU students, Team Unique, comprising Chin Jess Nny, Lim Chu Sheng and Daryl Ong Wi Hsien, stood out among other participants in the 2015 Gamification Hackathon, which was jointly organised by Nettium and SelfDrvn Enterprise recently.

The team worked on an application called City Life, in which they applied the gamification concept into workplace applications. After demonstrating outstanding creativity and skills throughout the 30 hours of programme development, the team was crowned as champions of the competition. They walked away with a cash prize of RM4,000 and a Microsoft Surface Pro 3. 

The competition was an eye opener for the team, as they had the opportunity to meet IT professionals and participate in special workshops and talks; in which enabled them to gain more exposure towards the industry and its requirements to excel in this field. Congratulations and thumbs up to the team; special thanks to Ms Vinothini Kasinathan, the mentor of the team for the dedication and effort. We shall look forward to hear more success stories in the future!
