Five-Star Falcons: Current Announcements
On a job well done!
I've heard all great things about your performance at the 2017 Appapalooza and am so proud of you all. You created a useful app that was coded and pitched well. Thank you for all your time and hard work this season.
I was able to attend Appapalooza today and was so proud of the amazing job these wonderful talented girls did. They were confident, clear and knowledgeable. The new thing this year was judges asking questions and they asked some tough questions and the girls did a great job thinking on their feet and responding which is not easy. The final event and the award ceremony was bigger than all prior years and was great to be part of. Yes we did not get announced as one of the 9 teams called on stage although I thought the app had high chance of winning but that is the least important part. Each and everyone of them should feel
You should all feel like winners because you won experience, love of coding and technology and teamwork and from what I heard a desire to come back stronger next year !! There is nothing stopping you from writing more apps or enhancing this app so keep on going !!
