The Pitch Ep36: Hacking Wild Card


Witness the NEXT generation of app-building, featuring the students of Malaysia's No.1 Coding School.

The Pitch is NEXT Academy's Coding Bootcamp app showcase event, designed to emulate a "Shark Tank" styled pitching event. The best part? YOU get to be the judge!

This episode will feature our graduates from the December 2019 cohort. For the final week of their bootcamp, they will have to use their newfound skills to build apps related to a theme of our choice.

Usually, we have a certain theme for The Pitch. But, this time around, we are doing something different! We are letting our students build anything they want, as wild as it can get (Hence why we called it Hacking Wild Card).

Maybe you are wondering, what kind of apps are they building? Here is some sneak peeks! 😉
- Parking has always been a problem inside crowded malls. The board says there are 450 spots left, but where exactly that empty lots? Fret not, now you know where are exactly the spots with the app that the students are building.
- Always forgot to bring your recycle bags and end up paying for not-eco-friendly plastic bags for your groceries? The students are building a rent-a-bag app so you don't need to spend on those plastic bags!

These are only a few ideas that the students are building. Want to know what else the students are building? Will one of these apps potentially become a necessity in our lives? Only one way to find out...

Mark your calendars now!
