    Hey London QBNers,

    The charity I work for, Apps for Good, is about to start it's annual competition.

    The competition involves the kids that are taught IT/Comp Sci through Apps for Good submitting their app ideas to be shortlisted by a group of expert volunteers. Winners of the competition get to have their app developed professionally and get introduced to loads of cool people from the tech industry.

    We're looking for digital professionals to join us at our shortlisting events and help us shortlist the best student app ideas. We need people who are able to spot a good app idea when they see one as well as being able to assess ideas for innovation, originality, market, technical feasibility and suitability to platform.

    The events will take place 8th, 12th, and 14th May at our offices off Old Street after-work with up to 20 Expert volunteers. It will be a mixture of an informal workshop reviewing of the ideas (which is fun and a real insight into the students we work with) and some networking afterwards (with other digital professionals who work in tech city). Food and drinks inlcuded!

    If you’d like to come along to any of these dates please RSVP to: orrin@afg-awards.leemail.me

    I wasn't at the company this time last year to be a part of the reviewing sessions but I've seen a lot of the entries from last year and it seems like a lot of fun. There'll be a massive range of ideas and it's a lot of fun seeing how creative the kids can be.
