#Connected Car Chronicles: BetterDriver.Club

Another episode of Vinli’s Connected Car Chronicles is in the books.
This week, we’d like to introduce two brothers who flew halfway across the world to compete in the “Super Bowl” of hackathons - Techcrunch Disrupt in San Francisco.
Meet, Peter and Mike from Poland, the creators of BetterDriver.Club.

During the podcast, you’ll find some wonderful tidbits on iOS frameworks, their hackathon strategy, book suggestions and more. This 15 minute podcast is a great resource for all novice and experienced coders out there! If you like what you hear, feel free to tweet at them both:
