Last night the fifth summer of the 9-week ISE Coding Garage program came to a close with 26 students presenting their mobile apps for a chance at $850 in prizes. In early June, the program started with 47 self-driven students working on their own apps and ended yesterday as 13 apps were presented for judging.
What we have to say, what you want us to hear.
That’s how our blog works. It’s interactive. Let’s learn together.
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).
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.
