On Monday the 2nd of October, we hosted our first ever competition showcase in New Zealand. Thanks to Xero for hosting this fabulous event where many of our teams showcased the apps they built in the 2017 Search for the Next Tech Girl Superhero Competition.
The event in Wellington was well attended by 60 participants from all over New Zealand. Some even travelled from Dunedin! Many of our teams presented the awesome apps that they built this year, with an added opportunity to talk directly with the community about the impact that their apps can make to the lives of everyone around them.
Our winning teams Evac-u-buddy from Wellington and Drink Minder from Hamilton presented their apps to the eager audience. Diana Jones, who donated prizes for the winning teams, was accompanied by one of our very won superheroes, Anna Divoli.
We have our second New Zealand showcase on Saturday, October 28th at SIGNAL ICT Graduate School in Christchurch. We would love to see you there!
