The concept of MIMO is to divide computer lessons into smaller portions, allowing aspiring coders to practice coding in a short span of time. In this way, you can learn to code in daily routine, whenever you have a few minutes of downtime-Like while travelling to work, while in a waiting room for an appointment, break time in between classes or anywhere else.
MIMO lessons start with a short sentence, and a code snippet you interact with and motivational feedback that displays after each interaction. This app is gamified as well, here players collect points, badges and with other achievements as they progress in the app.
Johannes Berger (CEO), Henry Ameseder (COO), Dennis Daume (CTO) and Lorenz Schimik (CPO), a group of technical background except Ameseder who is a business grad with software development experience has come up with an idea called MIMO application. The same group which had worked earlier on an app in the same space called Swifty, This team also helped to in improving the design, expanding to Android and marketing the app further. Swifty now has a million downloads and has made around $100,000 since its launch as told by Ameseder.
Amesedar told, to utilize some moments for something fun and meaningful with Mimo.”Most of them use MIMO on the go if the assumptions prove right during the train ride and other moments they have on a regular basis. The main targets of this app for young adults between the age group 18 to 35, User of age 8 are also trying out this app.
The team thinks they can expand this mini-lesson concept beyond computer science. The Mimo website touts ambitions to develop similar resources for other subjects like Finance, entrepreneurship, math and more.
Mimo is now available as a free download on the App Store and includes two free-to-complete courses. Later, you can select to subscribe to the app’s content for $49.99 per year to gain full access to all the courses in the app, as well as those that arrive in future updates.
