As part of the CREATE-BEST program, some of the great ideas that were pitched in the Pitch-an-App contest back in March were chosen to advance into the development phase.
The Design Sprint took place on the week of May 15, 2017. Each group included the idea owner(s) in addition to student volunteers that were chosen to fill the experience gaps in their team and to have a team that has all the knowledge required to develop an app in under one week!
The groups were coached by Dr. Mohamad Hoda, who is an experienced facilitator/coordinator in such events. Dr. Hoda was available in the room at all times to assist the groups in reaching their goals!
During the last day of the event, security expert, Ms. Valeh Montaghami from Irdeto, was invited during lunch to share her industry-related comments with our teams, and provide feedback that could help them take their projects to the next level.
