30 year-old Joel Sewing from Swedish Östersund has been announced the winner of LG Electronics’ first Nordic app development competition for the LG smart TV platform webOS with his memory game Magic Puzzle.
The competition was launched last November following a one-day conference and workshop in Stockholm on developing apps for the webOS platform attended by invited app developers and students, as well as tech and TV enthusiasts.
“The interest in the competition and webOS as a platform for applications has been great. It has been a pleasure presenting Joel Sewing as the winner of our first Nordic app development competition,” said LG Electronics Nordic Smart TV specialist Lorraine Bayram. “We hope that an initiative like this will make more Nordic app developers curious about webOS as a platform.”
Apart from having his app Magic Puzzle launched on the LG webOS Store, Joel Sewing will receive a LG OLED TV and visit LG’s webOS laboratory in Silicon Valley.
