Science Café – Grow Your Own App

You can brew your own beer, bottle your own wine and even fix your own home. There is probably an app to help with each of those tasks. Do you have an Android device? Google Play is the place you’ll find what you need, with more than 18 categories for the apps it supplies, including those from education, business, finance and gaming to name a few. Or maybe you have an iOS device? Apple’s App Store is the place to go, providing even more categories for its apps.

Have you ever wondered how someone gets started building an app? In this talk, Prof. Dwight Deugo from Carleton’s School of Computer Science will show you the entry points to becoming an app developer and how iOS and Android apps are written. No programming experience required, but maybe you’ll be convinced to learn more.

Where: Ottawa Public Library, Sunnyside Branch, 1049 Bank Street.

When: Wednesday, March 23, 2016 from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

The free 20-minute discussion will be followed by a question and answer session. The Science Café series takes place on select Wednesdays until April 6, 2016.

The Science Café series is organized by the Faculty of Science at Carleton University to discuss relevant issues facing our society and how science can help solve real-world problems. Meet some of our award-winning faculty members and graduate students as they share their excitement about science with the community. For more information, visit
