General Motors' OnStar will host a campus kick-off workshop for its OnStar Student Developer Challenge from 5 to 7 p.m. Jan. 27 in GHC 6115. Through March 11, students at participating universities, including MIT, the University of Michigan and the University of Texas, can submit voice-enabled applications using OnStar vehicle data into the competition.

Voice app experts from OnStar and QuickFuse will be on hand to show examples and provide tips on developing entries using the QuickFuse Voice App platform. Six semi-finalists will win all-expenses-paid trips to O'Reilly's Where 2.0 Conference April 9-11 in Santa Clara, Calif., to present their apps to a panel of judges. The grand prize is a $10,000 package of development tools including iPads, MacBook Pro and more. More details.
