Attention tech enthusiasts from ACCA Schools! The ACCA Computer Science Division is calling on you to unleash your coding prowess in a full-day event that’s set to spark your creativity and test your technical skills.
In a coding challenge, you’ll be teamed up with fellow students from various universities. This is your chance to collaborate, learn, and grow with new peers, expanding your network and forming lasting connections. Each team will get access to a repository of an open-source software project. Your challenge is to implement a list of features that will significantly extend the project’s functionality. This isn’t just about coding; it’s about innovating, problem-solving, and pushing the boundaries of what’s possible.
As the day progresses, your teamwork and creativity will be put to the test. At the close of the competition, a panel of judges will evaluate each team’s contribution, looking for innovation, efficiency, and ingenuity. Yes, there are prizes, and they’re awesome! But more than that, you’ll be gaining invaluable experience, honing your skills, and putting your education into practice in a dynamic, real-world scenario. This is your chance to shine and show what you’re truly capable of.
This isn’t just a competition; it’s a celebration of talent, a hub for networking, and a springboard to your future in tech. Mark your calendars!
