Welcome to a brand new edition of SS12. SS12 is a Code-A-Thon Challenge organized by Project:Possibility and local student organizations, such as Association for Computing Machinery (ACM). In the past, SS12 events have been held at the University of Southern California (USC) and the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). This event provides an opportunity for undergraduate and graduate software developers to make a profound difference by developing innovative, empowering software projects for disabled persons and win prizes for their work. The purpose of SS12 is to increase awareness of issues in accessible computing and be educational and fun for all participants.
