Coding workshop with industry experts

The student chapter ACM-W Uppsala is organising a coding workshopwhere you get to work with an industry expert and learn from the best. It’s an opportunity for you to expand your network, discuss your ideas, and to get hand-on experience on programming with an industry expert. During the event, we will form groups of 3-4 students and assign 1 expert per group. You, your team members and the expert will collaborate on a project, proposed by the expert and/or any of the group members.

The topic for the event is: Tools for the future, which encompass any kind of tool that you think could be useful for someone, e.g:

– Game for learning how to create words (Scrabble)

– Web app for doing Scrum

– A REST API using OpenData (e.g. plan your bus trip better than UL / SL)

This event is targeting students from all programs at the IT department (Bachelor in CS, the Master and the Computer and Information Engineering Programs) that have at least 2-3 years of programming experience.

ACM-W Uppsala provides breakfast, lunch and dinner for the event. Coffee and tea will be served throughout the event.

The only requirement to attend is to sign up andbring your laptop. If you already know which other students you want to work with in a team, drop us a message. However, your team mates must have successfully registered and given a spot, too.

There are only 18 spots at the moment, but we are trying to open more spots soon. Sign up before it’s too late! If you cannot make it, but have a spot reserved, please let us know ASAP, so that we can open the spot for someone else.
