About National BDPA Mobile App Showcase
The National BDPA Mobile App Showcase, powered by McDonald’s, State Farm Insurance, and WWT (World Wide Technology, Inc.), allows student application developers an opportunity to participate in a competition to test their talents against their peers while developing a working, functional mobile application. Applications showcased represent three primary AppDev competition categories (business, personal productivity, and gaming). Each category has stringent requirements that must be met well in advance of regional and national  showcases.

College and high school students had the opportunity to participate in this 2-day event in conjunction with the 2016 National BDPA Technology Conference recently held in Atlanta, GA. The focus of this event included development on Android  and iOS smartphone operating systems.
