The CCT has created the Mobile App | Art | Action Group, or MAG as a place to further thought and development in mobile computation.  Participants of MAG come together to share their progress, receive feedback and help, connect with others, and get inspired to try innovative things with mobile computing.  

With MAG, CCT intends to empower students, faculty, and professionals, as well as industry representatives to become part of the technology shift towards mobile computing.  MAG focuses on app development of any kind, not limited by mobile platform, application area, or area of interest.  The CCT realizes that this computing platform engages all types: business people; graphic, interaction, and game designers; musicians; engineers; social media practitioners; marketing and advertising specialists; and even a few programmers.  The group is exploring ways of introducing its participants to multiple approaches and mobile platforms as well as providing training in how they may be used.

Through MAG, the CCT is interested in engaging broader audiences, cultivating enthusiasm, engagement, and economic and workforce development across the full landscape of academic and professional disciplines.
Ubiquitous computing is here, and now is an exciting time for exploring and creating new ways to use mobile applications.  Please join us.
