“Our students spend so much of their other computer science classes learning fundamentals, practicing and preparing. CodePath’s Demo Day is a great reminder of what it’s all for — building and creating their ideas. No matter how many Demo Days I see, I’m always amazed at the diversity of ideas, and I’m inspired by their passion to drive change through what they build.”

Tim Lee, Co-Founder & Chief Learning Officer

America has a trash problem as hundreds of millions of tons are produced each year! And, while 75% of the generated waste is recyclable, only 30% actually is. DonateIt, an app that allows users to donate and/or receive donated goods, works to strengthen communities and minimize waste through donations. So, before you throw out your unused toys, furniture or clothes, open up DonateIt and post it for someone else to enjoy! See the project on Github.

Time is of the essence and searching for and keeping track of sales of your favorite Nintendo Switch video games is time consuming. After all, gamers would rather be gaming! The Nintendo Game Tracker App tracks sales and notifies users when a game on their favorites list goes on sale. It maintains a record and provides insight on the lowest price history to help you buy or hold– It’s like stock tips, but for Nintendo games with ratings and live streams! See the project on GitHub.
