“It was interesting and challenging. I learned things I hadn't been taught in class and a lot of my classes came handy in planning and producing the app,” Oguni said.

Oguni's third-place finish in the Pearson contest comes on the heels of a UTA team's first-place finish last fall in the AT&T Coding Challenge.
