The Echo Nest is participating in annual mobdev contest for the Mobile Application Development (mobdev) course at Olin College offered by Mark L. Chang. Already, our participation is bearing fruit. Ilari Shafer, one of our course assistants created a version of the Echo Nest Java client library that runs on Android. You can fetch it here: echo-nest-android-java-api [zip].
I spent a few hours yesterday talking to the mobdev class. The students had lots of great questions and lots of really interesting ideas on how to use the Echo Nest APIs to build interesting mobile apps. I can’t wait to see what they build in 10 days.
