Twenty high schools students from Hartford area presented their apps at McCook auditorium, Trinity College at Aug 15, 2014. During six week internship with the Mobile Apps for Hartford, they have developed mobile apps for their clients, six public or non profit organizations in Hartford. On the last day, they demonstrated their apps. The clients were impressed by and satisfied with the apps, and some organizations are actually planning to launch the apps for themselves. Among the clients was Mayor of Hartford Pedro Segarra, and he handed in the certificates to interns.
