App Dev League

Diversifying the Application Developer Community

About Us

Student-run application development nonprofit

App Dev League, a student-led nonprofit, is devoted to introducing the world of application development to underrepresented students. We don't just teach students how to code. We teach them how to make an impact on society with their code in an ethically-responsible way.

students to make a social impact in their communities

The COVID global pandemic has affected billions of individuals worldwide and most importantly students’ education. Resources and paid programs have opened all over the world for students to learn about computer science. However, these programs only further the digital divide and leave underrepresented communities in the dust. Our goal is to introduce a set of project-oriented and accessible curricula to bridge that gap. Our focus on application development education and ethics in technology uniquely powers these underprivileged communities to make both a local and global impact right from their homes through the power of Apps!

The App Dev League has been a wonderful place to volunteer. The founder and VP's work very hard to keep the organization running smoothly, and never pressure anyone to do work beyond their capacity. App Dev League also provides a lot of benefits to volunteers including the PVSA. I have been able to grow myself as a person, developer, and mentor in ways I never could have otherwise by contributing to their amazing mission of bringing the magic of coding and App Dev to everyone.

Before this camp, I had tried out other coding camps, but none of them were great. Then I got an email from App Dev League. I hesitated to sign-up, but I eventually did and that was probably the best choice I have made coding-wise before this camp. I didn't know anything about code, but with this camp, I have learned more about coding in more than all of the other classes I have taken combined!! The greatest thing about this camp is that it is free!!! The instructors are great, and so on, there isn't much you could say is bad, so if you are reading this, you have to try out this camp.

01How can I sign up for your free initiatives?
We will constantly update our initiatives page with details about our upcoming initiatives. All our initiatives will be free, and you can view more information about them by clicking the "read more" button under each initiative.
02What types of initiatives do you offer year round?
App Dev League strives to serve the underprivileged community through a variety of educational initiatives, such as our local Title 1 school program (STAR), our signature Appathon event, and our free educational app published on the App Store. More info can be found on the initiatives page. You can also contact us if you have more questions regarding the content of these initiatives and events.
03What skills will I acquire from attending your events?
Through our courses and camps, you will not only learn the fundamentals of computer science, but you will learn various topics such as AI, game development, and algorithmic computing. These topics will prepare you for our application development courses which integrate the content you have learned into a project-oriented course with numerous mobile apps and websites. Our competitive events like the Appathon also introduce important topics such as Ethics in Technology and allow students to apply CS and entrepreneurship skills.
04What makes this program unique?
During this COVID pandemic, many resources have been created to provide CS education. However, these courses not only lack 1 v 1 oversight and beginner-friendly content, but they also lack the project-oriented nature and focus on application development that our events and initiatives provide. We don't teach students how to code. We teach students how to create impactful code.
