WeChat Applet (mini-App, ‘little program’, App-in-an-App) is a special framework designed by Tencent that provides a light solution for developing, deploying, using mobile application within the WeChat eco-system. It allows users to launch new Apps without download and integrates with WeChat advanced interfaces like payment, location and user system. This mini-hackathon, right before WeChat Applet’s official launch (Jan 9, 2017), gives us an opportunity to share ideas with each other. You will team up with developers, designers, business persons to turn your idea into a Minimum Viable Product using WeChat Applet.
