Canada’s Great Kitchen Party

Mobile App

Canada’s Great Kitchen Party, formerly Gold Medal Plates, stages 11 culinary competitions across the country every year, raising more than $1 million in support of three charities. These charities represent three pillars: sports, music and food.

Cristian Durca and Roderick Bernardo from Seneca’s Information Technology Services department guided Matthew Tait, a student in the Honours Bachelor of Technology - Software Development degree program, in creating a mobile app for Canada’s Great Kitchen Party. This app was used by guests at the culinary competitions to select a “People’s Choice” chef. The app was a great addition to the events and will continue to be updated to include more features for guest engagement.

“Working with Seneca 360 was a great experience. I had the opportunity to be part of a new app development project from near the beginning to the very end, with enough support and guidance to ensure I'd able to complete it. Additionally, I had the chance to be mentored into working with a new app development framework. Seneca 360 offered flexible working hours and the opportunity to work independently or seek more help as needed.”
