App-E-Feat: Changing the World One Mobile App at a Time

Commitment by

IEEE

In 2013, the IEEE committed to building a website, App-E-Feat, to connect its global network of engineers and developers to organizations with initiatives that seek to positively impact humanity that are in need of technical expertise, with the goal of enabling these engineers to create apps that benefit the organizations and their constituents. Many of these organizations are financially unable to take advantage of the ways in which technology and social media can further their mission and goals. In parallel, the IEEE's global membership of 425,000 engineers is often in search of projects through which they can put their engineering skills to work for good. By creating App-E-Feat, the IEEE will support the development of 150 apps for these organizations within the first two years. These resources will include both apps tailored to the specific needs of these organizations that engineers have worked with hand-in-hand as well as templates repurposed from developed apps that can be used by anyone in the App-E-Feat community.
