weNear Launch Location Based Applications Competition

| Jul 1, 2008 | comment 2 Comments

weNearweNear, a mobile platform for location-based services and applications, developed by Egyptian company eSpace, just launched a location based applications competition today, which is open to students of The Computer Science Department at Alexandria University, Egypt.

The competition consists in building interesting location based applications using the weNear API. It starts today, July 1st, and the final submission date is August 31st.

Those interested in being part of the competition can go to the weNear competition announcement page to find details about the weNear architecture, documentation, and some initial client/server communication code in several programming languages to help them get started.

Contestants can then submit their applications at the weNear competition sub-site.

Should be interesting to see how this works out, and what different applications come out of it.

    interesting…I’ve watched the demonstration video and it really seems great idea. especially if you knew that GPS devices are not allowed in Egypt which include some of the hitch mobile phone devices.
