Until Wednesday 29th July I remain a member of the Zone team in Bristol as a front end web developer. As such I am therefore hugely privileged to be a part of the world’s largest hackathon for young people, the Festival of Code. Zone and myself are super excited to be welcoming a group of five youngsters to our Bristol offices where they will be spending the week from the 20th – 24th July working on their own design based around open data. During this time they will be being supported by full time Zone employees like myself acting as mentors to them for the week.
This is a fantastic opportunity for young people Nation wide to get involved in code and we are hugely excited to be a part of this endeavour, especially with Eltec Systems’ part in education being the main ICT support for Westhaven Special Needs School in Weston-Super-Mare.
We will be keeping you posted on the goings on as the week continues so keep posted here for the latest news and spread the word for the 2016 Festival of Code whether you want to join as a mentor or know young people that would be interested in coming along to be part of this fantastic week!
