The Pitch Ep18: Hacking Sustainable Development with United Nations

Description

Witness the NEXT generation of app-building, featuring the students of Malaysia's No.1 Coding School.

The Pitch is NEXT Academy's Coding Bootcamp app showcase event, designed to emulate a "Shark Tank" styled pitching event. The best part? YOU get to be the judge!

This episode will feature our graduates from the November 2017 cohort. For the final week of their bootcamp, they will have to use their newfound skills to build apps related to a theme of our choice.

The theme for this episode is Hacking United Nations Development Program's Sustainable Development Goals.

With 17 different causes in the program, ranging from ending poverty to preserving life below water, there are unending possibilities to make the world a better place. Add tech into the picture, and we just might find the solution to the world's biggest problems.

What kind of apps will our budding coders build? Will one of these apps potentially become a necessity in our lives? Only one way to find out...

Mark your calendars now!
