K MAD!!!


Software Development event - Kurukshetra Mobile Application Development Challenge

 “All that is valuable in human society depends upon the opportunity for development accorded the individual.”

- Albert Einstein

Here is more than just an opportunity for an individual to develop, an even bigger opportunity for a team to get crazy within the constraints of lesser power consumption, lesser memory usage and smaller displays, to name a few. Exploit a whole lot of exciting features like GPS and 3G services to build ground-breaking mobile software applications for the society!
