Sabanci University Campus
  • Space Apps Challenge Istanbul gathered many people from around Turkey last weekend: Besides Istanbul there were attendants from Hatay, Ankara and Bursa, too.

    We had very good time with TTNET hospitality. Food was delicious, staff was very helpful and the Sabancı University IC was the best venue for this event.

    13 projects were developed day and night. Some of us didn't sleep at all. Some of us enjoyed the silence while laying on cushions and some of us just energized by playing various games in TTNET Playstore room.

    TTNET has also provided a video shooting room and a camera for the attendants for their 30 second video production.

    We are very happy to meet all of the attendants and got inspired by their passion and creativity. This encourages us for next year. 

    We wish good luck to Mission Martian project of Fentek Allstarz team. And congratulations to all team members who will represent Turkey in Best Use of Hardware:
