ESA AppCamp call for participation

From the ESA AppCamp website: Are you an innovative developer from Europe with experience in app development? Then take your chance and apply to spend one week at the European Space Agency (ESA) near Rome between 18 and 22 June 2012. ESA is inviting 20 developers to its ESRIN location in Frascati (including travel expenses and accommodation) – and you can be one of them! Whether you are selected for the App Camp will depend on the creativity of your previous works with regard to content, usability, design, and the underlying business concepts, so show us the best apps you have developed.

Seize the opportunity to meet with like-minded people, create mobile applications using satellite data, and gain insight into ESA’s work. ESA provides access to satellite data for the development of mobile applications (Android and iOS) in four predefined categories. The goal is to come up with a concept for mobile apps using Earth monitoring data on smartphones, in particular by leveraging the possibilities offered by the GMES (Global Monitoring for Environment and Security) programme. You don’t need any experience in integrating such data to take part in the App Camp. Participants will be able to choose their preferred category and will then be grouped accordingly into teams of four. The winning team – whose members will each receive the iPad3 – will be selected by a jury of ESA representatives on the final day of the App Camp.

Apply now! Registration is open from 6 April to 6 May 2012.
