Code MI 2014_3rd Place Winners

Computer Science Students Place at Code Michigan

The State of Michigan, along with local units of government and the private sector, held its second annual Code Michigan event on October 3rd in Marquette, Detroit and Newaygo.  It is a three-day event where civic-minded developers and designers create apps for Michigan.

 

Winners received cash awards between $500 and $5,000. First place winners from each location go on to compete for the grand prize of $10,000 and an opportunity to pitch their winning idea to Renaissance Venture Capital Fund.

 

Ben Harris, Dallas Johnson, Matt Trefilek and Joel Whalen, current computer science majors at NMU, won third place in the Marquette location for a snowplow tracking app they designed.

 

Congratulations guys!
