Intel Developer Blog: A new app on Google Play designed for programmers

Hack the Code and contribute to an open-source Android app

Dev Story /*HACK THE CODE*/ is an open-source app made by developers for developers, and (you guessed it) it’s all about the development process. The Android app, built using the Intel XDK, consists of a series of challenges for you to hack and, if you get it right, you could find yourself building version 2.0 along the way. And it’s not just for seasoned coders: for techies looking to expand their app-building experience, there are plenty of tips and hints to help you make your mark on the Dev Story /*HACK THE CODE*/.

Before you start modifying the code yourself, you can learn more about how the software was built. Intel challenged developers to create an app in just one month that would resonate with other developers like them. Dev Story /*HACK THE CODE*/ was their answer: an app based on the challenges developers encounter when they’re, well, developing apps! If it sounds a little bit meta, that’s because it is.

Download the app on Google Play and start making your mark. If you manage to complete all the challenges, why not raise the bar for everyone else by pushing the parameters in the code, or spread the joy by porting the app to new platforms? Once you’ve downloaded the app, head over to GitHub for more resources and take control by hacking the code today!
