About this project

Enlarge the mobile Apps Lab with workstations able to develop Apps for iOS (iPhones, iPads, etc.) for the Barcelona School of Informatics
Needs Material Minimum Optimum
5 iMacs
5 iMacs is the minimum equipment in order to complete a little mobile Lab to develop Apps. The price of each of these teams for the University is about 1200 euros
€ 6.000
Ampliació del laboratori
With more budget, instead of five iMacs, we could expand it until 13 iMacs. The price corresponds to the difference between the cost of the 13 iMacs and 5 iMacs.

Total € 6.000 € 15.600

General information

The Barcelona School of Informatics ( offers a quality university training in the field of technologies, meeting the needs of society and the economy.

Currently, there is a great demand of professionals in the field of mobile applications.
Considering that Barcelona is the Mobile World Capital, our school has to be able to provide the necessary resources to train skilled professionals for all mobile platforms.

FIB has various laboratories for practical work and Final project where you can develop mobile applications, but does not have a specific environment for programming mobile based Apps on iOS (iPhone, iPod ...).

We need to complement existing laboratory workstations with Apple equipment to cover all development platforms for Apps since most students do not have this equipment because of its cost.

To achieve this, we need everyone's help because only with the regular funding of the University it is very difficult to achieve.

Description of the project. Main features, strengths and differentials.

In order to achieve the purposes of the project, the conversion of an existing classroom into a laboratory to develop apps for iOS systems is proposed.

The lab will become the place for teaching and develop iOS apps, in addition self-interest students, would also be able to complete online courses (MOOCS) to develop Apps.

Free loan on non-teaching periods for unemployed people courses, NGOs and non-profit social organizations.

It would be used for training activities of Talent program ( also.

We conceive the Laboratory as a meeting place for students who want to share knowledge and experience in developing apps.

In case of a huge demand, this laboratory will be linked to the booking system of the School so everyone will be able to use it.

Project development time will be the total amount required to purchase the equipment and it’s installation.


Why this is important

As a school of informatics we encourage students to have an environment where they can acquire knowledge in programming for iPhone, iPad ...

The project is mainly aimed to FIB students by providing them access to a laboratory where they can learn how to develop apps for iOS.
It also addresses to unemployed FIB’s graduates who may have a few hours a week of this lab and all those non-profit organizations wishing to offer training in iOS.

This project pretends to strengthen the mission of the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya - Barcelona Tech (UPC) and the Barcelona School of informatics to train professionals in mobile technologies, which is one of the most requested areas by the companies, which contributes actively in an area of strong economic growing.

Also Barcelona as the Mobile World Capital should be able to train experts in the field of mobile applications from a public university such as Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya - Barcelona Tech (UPC) .

NGOs can work proposed Final Project (TFG) through the school professors, and thanks to this project, you may also develop apps for iOS platforms.


Goals of the crowdfunding campaign

The aim of this project is to provide necessary resources to contribute mainly in learning mobile application development for IOS and thereby promote technical skills in this area, with the ultimate goal of incorporating professionals and entrepreneurs in a better position in the labor market.

Minimum Option: We consider that the bare minimum are 5 iMac (

Optimal Option: We consider the best solution would be to equip the entire Lab with 13 iMac computers.
