Erik Barrow, the Chair of the Coventry Chapter reported back to BCS about the event;

‘The weekend was a great success with 7 teams creating a number of different types of projects from learning tools, to games, and analysis tools. I would like to pass on my thanks to BCS for sponsoring the event and giving us the resources needed to run an event on this scale. Our winning team made an android game to follow the current viral trend "Donald Trump" called "Trump Toupe". The game consists of users playing Trump collecting hair in a side-scroller based environment, and avoiding objects such as "Fake News".’
