Balanga City gov’t, Smart hold training on developing apps

BALANGA CITY, Bataan, Feb. 20 (PNA) -– The city government, in partnership with Smart Communications, is conducting a three-day training on how to develop applications or apps, the first in Bataan, at the new library in this component city.

App or application is a piece of software that can run on internet, computer or phone or other electronic device.

Jennifer Suerte Felipe of the City Management Information Service Office said that the trainees are using computers donated to Balanga City Mayor Jose Enrique Garcia III.

New Star donated 10 sets of MacBook Air while the League of Barangays of the Philippines (LBP) gave 10 sets of Ipad air.

“After a few months, the training will be continued for more advanced concept,” Ramos said.

There are 20 participants coming from the city and provincial governments and from computer schools like Microcity, Eastwoods and Asia Pacific College, all in Balanga City.

“We hope to learn more about developing applications,” said Cheryl Sacdalan, Microcity instructor and one of the trainees. (PNA)
