The theme of “iOS App Dev and Challenge 2021” will be focused on Augmented Reality (AR), health/wealth being, environment and accessibility.

We sincerely invite teachers and students from all Higher Education Institutions to form an inter-disciplinary, and multinational team to participate in the largest App competition in the region, demonstrate excellent capabilities of Hong Kong representatives and learn more through exchanges and mutual learning with local teams. The programmers are glowing on the international stage!
