App Wars: Attack of the UbiComps

General description

Have you ever used a mobile application and wonder how it's built?

Have you ever wanted to know the principles of developing the perfect app?

Do you want to learn what's behind the code of the apps?

And the most important: are you ready for spending some crazy halara time and party hard in the beautiful greek beaches?!

If the answer to all the above is yes, then you should definitely apply for this AWESOME course in Patras this summer! Get ready for obtaining knowledge about human centered pervasive mobile systems and how to best use this methodology to develop new and exciting ideas into products without even writing any kind of code!!

Get ready for the greek summer!

Don't forget your lightsabers!
