Health Quest: Story of a UMN iPhone app
Date of event: Friday, September 20, 2013

Googe Hangout presentation

Do you want to make an app but aren't sure where to start or the commitment involved? Justin Paquette, Patrik Dousa, and David Krewinghaus from Academic Health Center (AHC) Communications will share the story of creating their first iPhone app called Health Quest, a photo scavenger hunt for the Minnesota State Fair. From initial concept, in-house development/design, and approval from Apple, to the hot summer Fair days of cheese curds, Pronto Pups, and the KARE-11 barn, we'll cover:

Overview - why an app, how it works
Design and development process
Promoting the app
Results, lessons learned, and future plans

There will be a Q&A session after the presentation with time for anyone in the audience to share their own experiences with creating an app. The presentation is for a wide range of audiences and will cover both technical and general aspects of this app project.
