Automation Nation 2016 App Wars

Automation Nation is all about providing opportunities for partners to learn, network, and engage with the latest technology solutions from LabTech and beyond. This year, those opportunities are being extended to teens from the Tampa Bay community via App Wars—a new event sponsored by the ConnectWise Foundation.

Instilled with a passion for improving the local community through philanthropic endeavors, the ConnectWise Foundation seeks to create educational and mentorship opportunities, for individuals and organizations alike, to engage with technology.

Similarly, Tampa Bay nonprofit, Computer Mentors, provides equipment and training to help bridge the technology divide for populations without sufficient economic resources, with a special emphasis on fostering an interest in technology in kids and teens.

This year, the ConnectWise Foundation and Computer Mentors have joined forces to create a competition designed to fuel a love for tech in the next generation. Introducing the first annual Automation Nation App Wars!

Fire up the epic John Williams theme music and cue the slanted yellow text! Here’s how it works.

The Challenge

A short time from now, in a galaxy not that far away…

More specifically, on June 20 in Orlando, Florida, you’ll have a chance to demonstrate your skills as an IT master when you volunteer to lead a small team of younglings to victory in a competition designed to build both tech and entrepreneurial skills while you battle your peers—and the clock.

In the span of one afternoon, you must guide your group of Computer Mentor teens in brainstorming and designing a unique app. A panel of LabTech Geeks will hear pitches from each team and select a winner to rule the galaxy!

Well, maybe not the whole galaxy. But you and your team will certainly rule the day.

The Impact

App Wars is just one of the ways LabTech is putting Don Crawley’s inspiring Automation Nation 2015 keynote message into action. Through continuous education and interaction, we can all put ourselves in a better position to help others.

You’re our only hope to make a lasting impact with this awesome mentorship opportunity. To quote the great Master Yoda: “do or do not…there is no try.”

To take part in this awesome mentorship opportunity, register for Automation Nation and then sign up to be an App Wars Team Leader today!
