Social Point lab is located in the basement of the A5.
This Lab has been funded thanks to the collaboration of Social Point , which has allowed to equip the A5s104 Lab with 21 iMacs and acquire mobile phones and tablets for students to develop and test their apps on different physical devices. Specifically, we have acquired: two mobile phones iPhone 5, two iPad mini, and two phones LG Google Nexus 5, which you can borrow.
In the upcoming weeks the rest of the equipment to complete the Lab will be acquired, two iMacs and four adapters that will be available for presentations with Macs.
These iMacs desktops have a triple boot system, which allows students to choose which operating system they want to work with: Linux, Windows or Mac OS.
