Season 1 of IDC took place back in 2017 when thanks to advanced technical expertise the contestants created innovative applications for education, the automotive sector, and more. One of the best-performed projects was My Car Service – a native Android application created for vehicle owners to keep records of maintenance costs and service procedures and receive notifications for any upcoming part change, repair, or document expiration. Technologies: Spring, Hibernate, XML, SQLite, MySQL
Season 3 brought us Aether Defense – a strategy mobile cross-platform game designed to recreate the traditional Tower Defense experience with a modern Augmented Reality spin. Blending the classic virtual world into the real one, the game features a map layout, waves of marching enemy attackers, and possessions and territories which must be defended. Players are offered endless replay value and a wide variety of customization options, while the co-op mode also allows for multiple people to play together.
