Get ready, oh, I bet this will get your heart racing if you are a tech enthusiast who likes a bit of coding. Recently, Google’s Made with Code and Snap are collaborating on the competition. It will aim to see one teen team which will work to create an official Snap lens. They have proudly named it #MyFutureLens which launches today, the five finalists who are chosen will be sent to the TEDWomen conference in the month of November in order to work with Google and Snap engineers. They will come together to make lenses for the Snapchat app.
Google’s Made with Code program has already offered several projects which willfully introduces the pop culture into the world of coding. It is like Wonder woman getting the experience of being taught sequences by Diana along with Amazons. #MyFutureLens is a project built with the aim to enlighten the teenagers with the fact that coding can be fun too while being applicable to the things they use and love in their day to day lives. According to an estimate, more than 50 percent of teenagers might use Snap daily, but they might not connect to features like it’s fun filters to a coding experience.
So, dear reader, if you are teen and a coder who is willing to enter in this competition then visit madewithcode.com to make use of a mobile-first Blockly experience and then code your own geofilter. Once it is complete, then submit the geofilter with a precise 100-word statement about the “future you envision.” The five finalist who will be chosen will be flown to this year’s TEDWomen conference in New Orleans. They will get a chance to work with engineers on a lens. It will be judged by a panel of Snap CEO Evan Spiegel. As it is targeted towards teens, Google will make sure that they will verify the age of the contestants after finalists are selected. And that is not it; the winning entry will be added to the most prestigious and Official US Snap library.
