About MDR Club

The primary goal of Mobile Development and Research Club is to provide a community driven workshop for those interested in a wide range mobile development and technologies relating to mobile computing. MDR Club was designed to develop a community of various skilled individuals that will have the ability to work together in a stress free environment to expand their abilities and knowledge of mobile computing as well as strengthen personal skills and work with other students from different disciplines. This is open to interpretation and allows any interested persons to join for a range of different reasons. Lastly, MDR Club builds opportunities to work with Winona State University departments to develop mobile applications and software for specific needs.

Mobile Development and Research was born under the idea that school teaches us how to write the code or sketch up the design, or write the story line, but misses the opportunity to develop this knowledge and found skills into a real life product. MDR Club is a collaboration of many different people coming together under a common goal and/or idea, Mobile development.

MDR also observes the social impact on society and how the adaptation of both human and software are growing together. Here at MDR Club, students who are interested in this field are capable of working with peers to better understand the limitations and overall outcome of these products being developed for the consumer.
