**Registration is required on the Picatic here:**

You can expect free food (if you’re there in time – they always go fast!), free beer, an incredible network of developers and entrepreneurs, and some awesome projects!


6:00pm to 6:30pm: Doors open, networking, food, beer!

6:30pm to 7:30pm: Introductions from our Head Instructors and Founders, followed by project presentation from each group.

7:30pm to 8:00pm: Your chance to talk with each group of students individually! They will set up booths in our space where you can interact with their project directly and ask them whatever questions you may have! This is also your chance to vote for your favourite project!

8:00pm: Based on the voting, the winner of the People’s Choice Award is announced! The night is wrapped up, and everyone is free to go about their night.

Project Previews


Word On The Street – Ben, James, Jody

Drop virtual ‘pins’ for specific ‘recipients’ at real, physical locations. The ‘pins’ would contain a text-based message plus potentially other media (eg. photo). Recipients would be other ‘users’ of the app and so the target could be either a single user or potentially a group and even the public at large. These ‘pins’ would only be retrievable when the ‘recipient’ is within a certain physical perimeter of the ‘pins’ location. The goal is to port to hybrid web app and ship to the Google Play Store. Co-Pilot – Vincent, Ramtin, Matt

Road trip planner to help you plot your adventures as you travel from point A to point B. Offers points of interest to the user to help them find things to do, based on their location at that time, to stretch their legs, spend a few hours visiting somewhere along the way. The user will have the ability to change the route on the fly and the directions to those choices will be updated automatically to simplify the directions aspect. Mana Match-Quest – Kevin, Will, Steve

JavaScript game that is a Puzzle Quest Clone with some Final Fantasy flavour, and online multiplayer capability!
