Akosta Apps

The website for Akosta Apps is live now!

Akosta Apps develops apps (surprise) for android and consists of Tobias and Jesper from Akosta (and will most likely also be featuring Jonas once or twice – we can already reveal that the Akosta team is developing a context-aware android app as part of a course (more to come on this matter)).

Hope that you will visit the website and check out what’s happening Akosta Apps ๐Ÿ™‚ Follow the twitter, share it on Facebook, +1 it on Google (buy the movie, watch the commercials and so on..)

The purpose of our blog

0 Comments | This entry was posted on Mar 28 2011

Our blog has existed for a while now and we thought it was about time to write a little bit about the purpose of our blog. So what do we want to achieve with this blog?
The answer is several things. We use the blog for documenting and sharing projects from our work/study. The documentation is both for our sake, in order to remember the things we have made, and it is for others to read/see. We hope that other students and interested can draw inspiration from our projects and use them as concrete examples on how different technologies and design processes can be used (e.g. a concrete example of a cultural probe in our MuMiT project, which is most likely not found elsewhere).
Since most of our current projects are from our study, the blog also shows what we work with as IT students. Our projects shows how the IT study combines design with software and computer technology.
Last but not least the blog is also for promoting our group and show what we do and what we are able to accomplish. Therefore we have also added a list of courses we have completed in our “About” page, to give an idea of what kind of areas we have studied.
We hope that you may have as much fun reading and looking at our page as we have had developing the projects ๐Ÿ™‚

Akosta in english!

Howdy reader
As you may have discovered we have added the option of english instead of danish – the function can be found in the upper right corner of the page just below our RSS feed. This obviously means that our pages will soon be available in english, but we can’t make any promises on how long the translation will take since we are being kept occupied by our studies.
We have discussed whether future posts and pages will be available in both danish and english, and have considered only writing in english from now on but we have not reached a conclusion on this yet. If you have any thoughts on this matter please feel free to leave a comment – cheers ๐Ÿ™‚
