Laura Neale and Matthew Weller, both developers with Brandwatch, took time out to come along to act as mentors at our recent Codefest event.

We had a great turnout at this month’s Codefest which took place on Friday, with students from a range of computing and engineering subject areas taking part.
Students were set tasks, either ten challenges for “advanced” or five challenges for “beginners”, that had to completed within two hours. They had to reverse engineer the question based on test cases for each challenge – focused on logic, maths and programming skills, to provide the solutions.
This themed event was a big success and allowed participants to get first-hand experience on how to make a game from scratch, build their portfolio, improve their teamwork and communication skills, be creative, network, win prizes, and, most importantly, have fun!
From the minute you start the University process your mind starts to worry about a whole range of things.

Below is some of the questions I found I was asking myself, and the responses I now have to those questions!
Students recently flexed their coding skills at the Christmas Codefest event. Open to all levels, students had to solve programming challenges in teams. The winning team were presented with a Raspberry Pi set and case each.
