Age: 20


State: NSW


Zac Altman was an IT student at the University of Technology in Sydney when he entered a competition to design applications for Android smartphones.


Altman’s app, Taxi Pro, came second in the competition, launched by Optus and National ICT Australia. It attracted more than 40,000 users before it was formally advertised.


In addition to Taxi Pro, Altman founded UniRadar, a free events aggregator for university students.


He currently works for Sydney-based start-up Collusion, and has previously worked as an iOS developer at goCatch and Punchey.


“The first of several challenges was moving from an iPhone development mindset to an Android one… Taking advantage of these differences is what sets your application apart,” he says.
