Champion of the Month: Simon Botes

Nokia PreSchool is the sort of big idea backed by skilled execution that keeps the honors coming for Nokia Developer Champion of the Month Simon Botes. The idea, to create a free, home preshooling system that can run on Nokia Series 40 phones, took first place in the Create 4 Millions Challenge. Simon's coding of the app at the Nokia Hackathon took top prize for a Series 40 Web app. The app is already submitted to Nokia Store and will be available soon.

Update Nov 7:   Preschool Aid is now available in South Africa and will be rolling out globally soon.

This is not Simon's first success. Check out Simon's profile for more achievements, including over 120,000 downloads from Nokia Store with "zero marketing" and selection as a Mail & Guardian 200 Young South African.
