Coming up: coding and prototypes

Idea process is almost finished, we will close the idea submission in the following couple of days and right after that we will open the app submission period. If you have already submitted your idea and received some feedback from your mentor, what should you do next?

  • You can now start building your app! Read carefully your mentor’s comments and try to follow their suggestions so as to improve your idea and make it more relevant for the competition and the objectives of the challenge. If you don’t understand or don’t agree with some of their comments, feel free to continue the conversation with them and explain further the possibilities of your idea.
  • While you code you may find that more questions or doubts are coming up. Don’t hesitate to post them under your idea page and ask your mentor for more guidance. Or check our entire list of available mentors, choose the one you think more appropriate to answer your question and ping him through a private message. Or simply post your doubt in our forum, so that other developers can help you solve it.
  • App submission is now open. Using the submission form you can start building your app profile, which will remain hidden from the public until the Online Competition is open. In this profile you can include more and updated information of your app, screenshots and drawings of its design, maybe a demo video… You can edit this profile as many times as you like until the end of the Challenge, maintaining it up to date is important so that the mentors can see what you are working on and send you useful comments.

Have more doubts? Just post them in our forums.
