We’ve been following Science Week closely in the last few years here at BCS South Yorkshire. Everything from our Raspberry Jams to our beginner-friendly virtual hackathon last year, all to celebrate, inspire and encourage more learners into tech.
This event continues on this path, so if you’ve started coding recently but could use a bit more structure, or you’ve been coding in your first gig for some time but would like to try something different - this is for you.
Join our BCS South Yorkshire event supported by The Developer Academy and UK Home Office and powered by Gitpod for an afternoon filled with challenges and learning. We’ll be using a cloud environment, so only bring your computer and enthusiasm. Please note we will contact you via email to give you more tailored instructions.
The team will be around for tech help and will be judging the results at the end of the night on social media with some book vouchers as prizes for the best solutions.
Our events are for adults aged 16 years and over.
BCS is a membership organisation. If you enjoy this event, please consider joining BCS. You’ll be very welcome. You’ll receive access to many exclusive career development tools, an introduction to a thriving professional community and also help us make IT good for society. Join BCS today.
