True to our commitment of knowledge sharing, Mobomo’s CEO, Brian Lacey and Project Manager, Malena Lopez visited Martha’s Table last week to speak with smartART interns on mobile app development.
smartART (Awareness Relationships Technology) is a program challenging teens to delve into issues impacting their lives, bring awareness to their community and be the change. The program helps foster critical thinking, collaboration, creativity and communication skills via art projects, oral presentations and technology.
This summer, the Summer Youth Employment Program (SYEP) students were Content Developer Interns. Tasked with app development, these students designed applications addressing the issues of literacy education, health and nutrition and making good decisions.
During Mobomo’s visit, the interns had the chance to peek into life as an app developer and ask any and all questions! So what exactly did the interns learn?
- Typical sales cycle
- Client interactions
- Product life cycle
- Work readiness skills
Best of all, the interns learned the importance of creativity in the dev world.
