Mobile App Development

Mobile App Development @ RIT is our week-long summer day camp that lets students design and develop a mobile app for Android OS. This camp is enriched with mini-tasks and week-long goals that promote programming skills and creativity. Along with the mini-tasks, instructors teach the students some of the fundamental aspects of Mobile App Development.
