Jumpstarters CodeFest 2012

Jumpstarters

On Saturday 13 October, we popped along to the Jumpstarters Codefest 2012 event which is a weekend-long festival of innovation. Teams of between 2 to 6 individuals competed to demonstrate a new product or service for the judging panel, with the winner to receive a support package worth $20,000 from ilab to help commercialise their product and jumpstart their business. We spent an hour with the teams to give the attendees a look at Windows 8 and how to develop apps on the platform. It was great to see a bunch of people around the industry donating their time to be mentors for the event!
