Abelson’s Android Class Sparks Interest, Bears Fruit
3 October 2008
Professor Hal Abelson’s experimental course from spring 2008 (“Building Mobile Applications with Android”) has been renewed for the fall. Now titled “Building Mobile Applications,” enrollment has doubled and the range of devices it will work with has exloded. This is unsurprising, as its initial premise succeeded beyond all expectations.
After one of the teams in the course won a $300,000 prize from Google as part of the Google Developer Challenge, the development has expanded significantly and the sky – or Apple’s iPhone – seems to be the limit.
