Leon Kukuk’s entry to the #EULife AppChallenge was called EU Connect and won him a judges commendation. Leon is a 16 year old high school student from Germany and we caught up with him to find out why he entered and what he thought to the data.

How did you find out about the competition?

I was looking for App contests on Google and that’s how I found the #EULife AppChallenge.

Why did you Enter?

I wanted to find out how good I am compared to other developers. Also I wanted to get some experience with meeting deadlines as I’m only 16 years old so I don’t really have any deadlines for my own projects!

What did you think to the #EULife data?

I thought about how I can compress this big collection of data into one little app that users can understand. I was also interested in making it easier to learn something from the data, that’s why I added the chat feature. This way you can get to know other countries even better.
