Hosted by AT&T and the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission, 2017 Malaysia Developers’ Day is a contest that will challenge participants from Asia to create a mobile app within 24 hours.

Winners will share cash prizes worth US$13,000 (~MYR55,850) and Nanodegree scholarships worth US$10,000 (~MYR42,960) from AT&T and Udacity. Inmagine Group, one of the world’s largest content libraries across the creative ecosystem, will provide contestants with free access to image content to develop the app. It will also provide mentorship and potential internship opportunities to the winning teams.

Last year’s event proved to be a success, 132 participants created 22 new app ideas. This year, the organizers will invite creative minds in Asia to harness the Internet of Things (IoT) to build new apps with a special emphasis on data analytics in the following four categories:

  • Smart city
  • Healthcare
  • Sustainability 
  • Home

Participants can also use the powerful AT&T M2X IoT development platform. It offers a toolset to quickly create and refine prototypes, and cloud-based data storage to help collect, analyze and share IoT data.
