Boy Scout Hackathon #fldev #windows8

Hackathon for Troop 246


Technically, it’s a Computer Merit Badge class, but why stop there.  The requirements are to write an if statement in Access.  These kids are way beyond that so they have accepted the challenge of getting an App published by February 28th. 

Something of note.  Since I am learning the competition I offered to demonstrate writing an iOS app as well.  None of the Scouts were interested.   Some even expressed disdain for iOS.  We still have work to do to bring them to Windows.   But I sold them on ease of use and competitions with great incentives.   

Specifically, we are shooting for the Generation App incentives for February
