University of Hawaiʻi student teams took first and second place at the 2017 Hawaiʻi Annual Code Challenge (HACC).
Team LoveMilkTea took first place with a UH Mānoa wayfinding mobile app that helps students and campus visitors navigate the campus.
Team FidgetSpinners took second with a mobile-friendly, searchable Hawaiʻi Revised Statutes app.
HACC provides a venue for the state to work together with the tech community to improve how state government works with the public, while also helping to develop the local IT workforce.
“Whether they were winners or not, everyone who participated in the Hawaiʻi Annual Code Challenge was part of improving how state government interacts with and serves the public,” said Gov. David Ige, one of the HACC judges. “Innovation and the development of our local IT workforce is critical to making government more effective, efficient and open, now and in the future.”
