Member’s Monthly Meeting, March 30, 2015

“Roadside Assistance Mobile Application Demonstration”

You are cordially invited to join members of The Barbados ICT Professionals Association (BIPA) on Monday, March 30th, 2015 beginning at 6PM at the 3Ws Oval, University of the West Indies, Cave Hill, St. Michael.

In 2014, The Barbados Coalition Of Service Industries (BCSI) and sponsors Digicel launched a successful Mobile App competition which matched local app developers with companies to create mobile apps. The competition stimulated much interest and culminated in successful joint-venture initiatives. By way of follow-up, BIPA has invited one of the successful developers to present a prototype of their app at the next Members meeting. This is an excellent opportunity for members to gain exposure to this exciting area of new technology.

BIPA’s Monthly Members Meeting will consist of a prototype presentation from the App Developer’s Group led by Deimarr Callender (Company Name: Tech-Wolf).

This project is a roadside assistance application built on the Android platform which makes use of GPS, email and SMS technologies. After a user launches the application, with the tap of an icon, GPS coordinates are transmitted via email or SMS to a designated response team which will then make use of a Garmin device to pinpoint that user’s location.
