Wipro AppLife Contest 2013 to build apps announced

With an increasing focus on smartphone app, Wipro has announced a contest to help students design their dream app for mobiles.


The Wipro AppLife Contest, which saw over 2000 students in 2012, is aimed at igniting the imagination of students and making them early starters in the mobile application development space. The contest, which is hosted on Wipro’s ‘Campus Arena’ portal, gives participants a chance to work on technologies like iOS, Android, HTML 5 and other open source platforms.

The Wipro AppLife Contest 2013 is open to all final and pre-final year students of Wipro accredited engineering colleges across India. The students have to first register online on the Wipro Campus portal, after which they will be provided with a software development kit required for developing mobile applications for any smart phone and tablet.

Speaking about the contest, Rajeev Kumar, Global Head – Fresher Hiring, Wipro, said, “The Wipro AppLife contest germinated from the need to equip future engineers with the knowledge and right skill set in application development, and prepare them for the next wave of technology adoption. We had an overwhelming number of students participate in the first year and going by the entries received so far, we are confident of seeing an equally competitive number this year. We aim to make the AppLife contest a one-of-its kind initiative by providing students effective mentoring strategies, tools and framework to design the perfect mobile app.”
