Contest for app developers
THE BARBADOS COALITION of Service Industries has partnered with Digicel Barbados to host a contest which will give several mobile app developers the chance to provide business solutions for local companies.
Speaking at the Industry Genius Mobile App Development Contest Corporate Workshop at Hilton Barbados today, BCSI executive director Lisa Cummins said the contest will give the app developers “the foot in the door framework” many of them lack since they are relatively unknown.
Meanwhile, head of customer care at Digicel Andrea Worrell added: “We see this competition as a win-win situation for all involved; for you the developer, for businesses, for the economy and Barbados on a whole. We see the potential for the creation of employment, new businesses, new investments, new markets – in short, another avenue for the stimulation of the local economy”. (LK)
