The end goal of the ISE Coding Garage is for each participant to create a mobile app for a chance at winning prize money. But, we have always wanted it to be more than that. Throughout the summer each session begins with learning something. From using Slack to communicate and backing up code on GitHub, to enhancing presentation skills - these are all tools and skills that will be needed in college or beyond in future careers (we use all extensively at ISE).
What we have to say, what you want us to hear.
That’s how our blog works. It’s interactive. Let’s learn together.
Welcome back to the Meet Our Team Q&A series. My name is Daniela Williams, Project Manager at ISE, and I’ll be asking ISE team members questions to help give insight into what makes us tick.
Each summer ISE hosts an internship program that has attracted highly qualified college students from around the state. This summer Ian Gottshal, Nick Hawkins, and Daniel Opdahl joined the ISE team in Corallvile, along with Nick Dallege who is here for his second summer. For the first time, we also have an intern at our Plano, Texas office - Matthew Kunjemmen. Today I chatted with the group to learn a bit more about each of them.
Tuesday night was the kick off of the 2019 ISE Coding Garage. Nearly 50 students will be spending their summer developing mobile apps. Along the way, a slew of ISE interns and engineers will help guide them in their creations. As one student described it, the program is like an extended hackathon.
