  2. Basically you need to create a backend that leverages EOSIO and the
    blockchain to deliver an application of benefit to the Virginia Tech
    community.
  3. You also need some sort of interface to demonstrate the use (and
    value) of your application. This would typically be a mobile app or a
    web interface. For examples of EOS web interfaces see:
