Abstract

Mobile technology is changing the way we communicate and programmers are needed to turn a companies’ ideas into reality. This report describes the design decisions and programming details involved in developing a novel iPhone app for the medical industry. In the process, the report examines how women succeed in a male-dominated sector of engineering – software development – and explores how to encourage high school students to take an interest in software engineering as a possible career.
