The equipment is stored and the dust has settled, but talk still lingers about a very successful 2015 LDSTech Conference. If you missed it, it was held on October 15 at the Institute of Religion building on the University of Utah campus in Salt Lake City, USA. Words like “impressive,” “interesting,” “informative,” “interactive,” and “insightful” echoed in the halls. Many conference participants brought their own energy and expertise in the form of well-thought-out questions and valuable experience using Church technology in many ways.

There were about 500 attendees, 29 formal presentations that were approved and available, and demos by App & Game Contest winners. Great ideas were all around. Church employees and many volunteers were on hand to answer questions and direct participants around the conference venue.

Thursday, October 15, the winners of the LDS Gospel App & Game Contest were announced at the opening of the 2015 LDSTech Conference in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Gary Miner, Contest Manager from the office of the CIO of the Church, recognized the efforts of all the contest participants in saying, “Judging was hard because so many creative ideas were put forth that were very well executed by experienced developers.”

The apps may be downloaded from the various app stores and accessed on public websites through an online Contest Gallery. You will find many have amazing graphics, engaging interactions, and easy-to-follow on-screen instructions. Others are more specialized, with a clear gospel impact for the lives of potential users.
