The Department of Computer Science is proud to announce the Colloquium Series with Thomas Taylor and Joseph Gibson, Computer Science students at IUP.

You are invited to attend a talk titled “Mobile Development: University Implementations” presented by Taylor and Gibson.

This event will be held on Thursday, April 26, 2012, from 3:30–5:00 p.m. in 327/329 Stright Hall.

The talk will be about a series of applications developed on the Android Mobile Operating System to allow functionality with both university services and interaction with the mobile device itself to provide a smooth and streamlined approach to mobile applications.

Featured demonstrations will include:

  • Schedule application
  • Directory application
  • Campus map application
  • News feed application
  • Applications in the classroom

These, while not officially endorsed by the university, are made by students with students in mind. They will be presented in an “Application Suite” type package, and comments and criticism are encouraged.

Taylor and Gibson have wide knowledge on this subject through extensive research into other universities applications and the Android Mobile operating system.
