Intellego (AIM: IHP), a leading digital learning company specialising in the provision of productivity improvement, is pleased to announce that on 22–23 October 2011 it hosted London’s first ever Hackathon to promote the development of innovative and commercial mobile Apps.

The Autumn Hackathon was the first in a quarterly series of digital technology hack days bringing together developers from the UK and Europe to pool their talents in a competitive environment to create new applications for the booming mobile and social networking platforms.

A panel of leading entrepreneurs, VCs and developers judged the competition, awarding prizes in two categories: The most innovative App and the App with the best commercial potential. The winners of Autumn Hackathon, who were each awarded prizes of £4,000 of legal services from law firms Irwin Mitchell and ADL Legal, were:

  • Most Innovative App: iPhone Lightsabre, designed by Cornel Lesinski using gyroscopic technology and operates as a multiplayer game linked to a TV.
  • Best Commercial App: Top Trump game, designed by Trump Trifecta and allows different skins to be applied to the card sets to provide multiple games.

Intellego will be running the Spring Hackathon in April which will focus on mobile Apps for the estimated 2 million visitors to the London Olympics next Summer.

Andy Hasoon, CEO of Intellego, commented, “We are delighted to be the lead sponsors of the Hackathon events. Intellego is all about promoting educational development through digital, online and mobile technology, so working with some of Europe’s leading App developers has been an exciting experience for us.”
