Mobile Apps for Hartford
Mobile Apps for Hartford Program is a collaborative project between Trinity College, the City of Hartford, and the Connecticut Chapter of the Computer Science Teachers Association. Students from the Hartford, Connecticut area who have been accepted into the program work as paid members of a small team developing mobile applications from the ground up. In the first year of the program, students worked with the Hartford Mayor’s Office, other departments of City government and nonprofit agencies to determine their operational needs and to develop up to five application solutions that address them. In the second year of the program, a new group of students was be hired to refine, test, and distribute the apps from the previous year. Along the way, students gain valuable experience working in collaboration with peers and clients, bringing projects from inception through design, refinement, testing, and distribution.
