Volunteer With AppsForGood

by @edent | # #

I've written before about CDI's AppsForGood initiative.

They work with schools and help students develop apps. Currently, they are working with 100 schools across the UK to deliver courses to more than 5,000 students.

If you work in the mobile industry, you should volunteer to be one of their experts. Spend just 30 minutes having a Skype chat with a group of excited teenagers, share your expertise, hear their ideas, be infected with their enthusiasm.

This isn't just a "feel good" exercise, many of the apps get built and released - and you can download them right now.
