What do you have to do

Information Technology is now a part of our daily lives. However, there are still problems that take place in one’s everyday experience that awaits you to use IT as a solution to those problems. Can you think of anything at the moment? Think NT Bus Tracker or Fuel NT, the past projects as the outputs of our CDU IT CodeFair and suggest your own solutions to everyday problems you found in the NT.
