About this event

Join Jamie Gonzalo, VP Huawei Mobile Services and Giovanni Laquidara, Huawei Developer Advocate to gain an insight into the creativity and inspiration that is behind app development innovation.

Find out how the most successful developers think creatively to make their app stand out from the crowd. By taking a close look at case studies on some of the most innovative apps using HMS Core technology, students will get a close-up view of the thriving app ecosystem and learn about the innovation that drives the most successful apps.

In this event we will explore:

  • What is behind app innovations
  • A case study about using HMS core
  • What drives the most successful apps

This event is part of the Global Challenge Lab 2021, a 10 day virtual entrepreneurship programme exploring the UN Sustainable Development Goal 3: Good Health and Wellbeing. You do not need to be part of the Challenge to attend.
