We Won Sercomtel University Contest

During the second half of 2010, I attended the Sercomtel University Contest in the apps category, developing an Android app to search for bus routes in Londrina city.

The project was presented in Sercomtel in december/2010 and we received the first prize. My team received BRL 5000 (divided in parts based on how much which member was involved in the project) and a mobile phone to our teacher advisor Eduardo Guerra. Another team from my school (ITA) received the third prize in the games category.

You can take a look at Transita presentation. It was an awesome experience, using geohashing algorithms to optimize calculations and Google App Engine servers to host some bottle based services.

I got involved in this contest because of ITABits, an alumni group learning about game development and other awesome things.

You can see below two pics of this app.
