On Saturday 18th May at Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (JKUAT), eMobilis Institute and Nokia organized an awarding ceremony for the 40 students who created and published innovative mobile applications during a Windows Phone Application Boot Camp.

The 10 week training conducted under the eMobilis Boot Camp series, offered students a free subsidized training in Software Development allowing them to create Windows Phone apps.

The requirement of the training was that students had to publish functional apps and present the app concept.

The apps published from this program include entertainment, games, first aid apps, a lost car tracer app, a translator, a swahili word game, investment guide and many more.

There were prizes for the top 5 apps including cash and phones and the top student walked away with the stunning Nokia Lumia 920.

The applications presented are already available and are being downloaded by consumers on the Windows Store. Charles Mwabu, a senior IT lecturer at JKUAT noted that he was very impressed with the quality of applications and the fact that first and second year students had become strong programmers through the training.

“Nokia is happy to support university partnerships in Kenya and to help highlight the mobile applications developed by students in through a special zone in the App Store.

In attendance was Managing Director of eMobilis Ken Mwenda who acknowledged that the training was a first of its kind in Kenya and thanked JKUAT and Nokia for the great support that allowed bright students to get a sponsored training that resulted in 35 exciting published Windows Phone Applications.
