"Human nature means we are all curious about how things work," said Steve Leonard, Executive Deputy Chairman of IDA. "The code::XtremeApps:: Hackathon is a great event that gives a chance to everyone who is curious to explore building technology. We are proud to support events that encourage experimenting and building with tech as these skills will be increasingly important as Singapore becomes the world's first Smart Nation."
"Each year we have seen this - young programmers pushing themselves to create something useful and meaningful with excellent creativity. The ideas that participants came up with have real potential to help communities, especially those with special needs," added Yap Chee Yuen, ITSC Chairman. "I hope to see many of the solutions developed and fine-tuned further to be adopted in the community."
