The Pitch Ep15 : Hacking eSports


Witness the NEXT generation of app-building, featuring the students of Malaysia's No.1 Coding School.

The Pitch is NEXT Academy's Coding Bootcamp app showcase event. Designed to emulate a "Shark Tank" styled pitching event. The best part? YOU get to be the judge!

This episode will feature our graduates from the July 2017 cohort. For the final week of their bootcamp, they will have to use their newfound skills to build apps related to a theme of our choice.

The theme for this episode is Hacking eSports.

Have you noticed eSports' soaring popularity? In 2017, the eSports economy grew to USD696 million, an all-time high with a year-on-year growth of 41.3%.

With the growth of sponsorships and opportunities flowing in, the global eSports audience is expected to reach 385 million by the end of 2017, 191 million of which being die-hard enthusiasts. What was once a pastime is fast becoming the next hottest career opportunity.

With such tremendous growth in a short amount of time, there'll naturally be much room for improvement in the industry. That's where our graduates come in. They'll help address the pressing needs of the eSports world with fresh ideas and innovative thinking.

What kind of apps will our budding coders build? Will one of these apps potentially become a necessity in our lives? Only one way to find out...
