Informatics student wins Samsung bada Challenge
Razvan Moisa, a final-year student in the Department of Informatics, won £1000 in the national Samsung bada Student Development Challenge finals on Monday 23 January for his innovative mobile app ‘Doodle Fight’.
Razvan, who is studying Computer Science with Management, was shortlisted for his mobile app ‘Doodle Fight’, in which users can sketch a soldier and then do battle with their friends. Once a fighter has been drawn, it can fight against random doodles drawn by other app users.
Razvan commented: ‘I believe the whole experience has taught me a lot more about app development and how it differs from any other type of development. There are a lot of constraints both in hardware and API (application programming interface), but that is what makes it more challenging. I hope to be able to develop more apps in the future for the bada and for other platforms as well.’
