About

Voted Best Educational App by Best Mobile App Awards for the summer of 2017! Also nominated as one of 5 finalists for the NHHTC Product of the Year award 2017!

We began taking DevKit to market in August of 2017, and our curriculum is currently being used in 5 schools. We are also hosting DevKit "Hackathons" at schools across the nation in an effort to both showcase DevKit's power and get our foot in the door. A Hackathon is a place where a group of developers come together and compete to accomplish a particular goal. In this case, that goal is to build the coolest app with DevKit. The money will be used to both help orchestrate these "Hackathons" and to buy up booth space to market the platform at ed-tech trade shows and conferences.

If a course built around DevKit was taught as a preamble to any and all introductory coding classes in the country, the amount of computer science majors would more than double in 10 years. DevKit is as much an inspirational tool as it is a learning tool. By eliminating the need to first learn a coding language, DevKit enables beginners to dive right into the development process and begin developing their own mobile apps and games right away. Hence, not only do the procedures and concepts practiced in DevKit lay the foundation for these students to become great programmers, but inspires them as well. After building a fully functional, App-Store-ready iOS application with DevKit, a student will be more than both willing and ready to dive into his or her first coding class.

Risks and challenges

The risk in this product lies solely in the marketing challenge, and the challenge lies in convincing the first round of schools to take the first step. Once a few schools gets on board, more and more publicity will be generated, which means more and more schools will begin to hear about it. Schools like to look to other schools for validation, so once we get the ball rolling with a bunch, we expect the growth to be exponential.
