Suffolk #MobileHackDay

AtriumFor once I’m not the Onlygeek today! The atrium of Suffolk County Counci’s Endeavour House in Ipswich is full of geeks for the first Mobile Hack Day. For much of the day these geeks have been tapping away at laptop’s trying to write mobile apps using the mobile apps platform from Jadu.

Suffolk County Council have bought into this platform and CIO Mark Adams-Wright has a vision of lots of apps being available really very soon to let people find out about Suffolk events and access services on the move.

Deputy County Council Leader Jane Storey was present for the first part of the day giving welcome top level support from the County Council to the event.

Following a keynote presentation from former BT CTO Peter Cochrane and an introduction to the platform we geeks got to work thinking of concepts for apps or developing some of the ideas that people had already thought of.

I spent the day designing a mobile app for Suffolk Libraries that lets users search Suffolk Libraries catalogue as well as finding out information about local libraries!

As well as having fun we were also competing for prizes!

Here are some photos the event organisers took. I really enjoyed the event and it was great to see Endeavour House open and being used.
