Supporting Young Generation Abto Software sponsors 2016 Summer Codeschool in Uzhgorod
In the summertime, when the weather is hot,
it’s a great time to learn how to code!
Rephrasing the cliché, education speaks for itself in the modern world. Abto Software takes this seriously and makes a point to support tech talents. In August our Company became a sponsor of The Summer Codeschool hosted by Uzhgorod National University.
The initial aim of the school is an immersive learning process for those more than 100 talents who are passionate about coding. This program targeted for college students who wanted to supplement their education and build a strong portfolio of comprehensive algorithms development. A specifically tailored intensive program helped them polish their knowledge with meaningful information.
Experienced, engaging instructors from 20 Ukrainian universities took them through course material, step by step. They had a chance to learn from mentors and award-winning guest speakers who shared insights about coding, algorithms, and the industry in general.
Working with a mentor made it possible to apply algorithms directly with course challenges, bring to life what they had learned and received immediate helpful feedback.
The everyday curriculum consisted of four stages: lecture part, problem-solving contest, problem review and day summary. 19 teams competing in two leagues from all over Ukraine racked up points in the challenges completing each course level, leading up to the course completion certificate.
Participating in the Summer Codeschool means learning much more than “how to code”. The students learn how to think like software engineer, become a part of the developers’ community in the future.
This school created an experience that addressed Ukrainian and foreign students to show their skills in constructing complex algorithms and developing an application on a high level. Abto Software in its turn is committed to inspiring young people to become the next generation of science, technology, engineering, and math professionals.
