“Having collaborated with BoilerApps on the Record the Earth app as a graduate research assistant, I think having your work available for everyone to download in the iTunes App Store and Google Play Store is a very good resume builder.”

“One of the great parts of working with BoilerApps is that they provide a wide range of opportunities to get involved with different technologies. I worked on Trevor Stamper’s cyber forensics app with them and it was a great learning experience.  I was able to work with new software tools, learn new skills, and use my existing skills to further the app development.”
