Dates are set for Yangon’s third annual app and software development conference, organizers announced last week.
AppExpo 2015 will run from February 19 to 20 at the MICT park, and will once again be organized by Yangon Heartz Media and Business Solutions, a local technology start-up.
In addition to giving local programmers and software engineers a chance to network, Yangon Heartz Media CEO U Zaw Zaw Myo Lwin told The Myanmar Times that this year’s expo would include a US$500 prize for the ‘best app,’ to be chosen by a panel of judges at the event.
U Zaw Zaw Myo Lwin also said his company was in talks with several international software companies about presenting at the event, but he declined to name names.
U Thar Htet, chief software engineer from Zwenexsys software company, told The Myanmar Times that he and his team were looking forward to showcasing several of their recent apps at the expo. He said their crown jewel is Yote Shin, which searches for and displays Yangon movie showtimes.
