Space Apps Challenge Judging

A tense moment in the judging.....

A tense moment in the judging.....

That was such fun. At the end we had four teams that produced projects that gave Derek, our judge, some meaty developments to get his teeth into. In the end the overall winner was the Fire Finder app, although everyone who took part produced some lovely results. 

I was part of Team "What'sUp", trying to build a HoloLens application that let you look into the "sky" (or the ground) and see what satellite are around relative to your position. It was my first foray into Unity and HoloLens development and it's worthy of a blog post all it's own. Which it will get....

You can find details of what the teams got up to here. Many thanks to c4di for the use of their lovely work area and to Dileepa for hosting the event. And getting us pizza.

Everyone who took part had a whale of a time. All of the starters finished with a working solution. Here's to next year.
