A competition for students to improve Computer Science and Software Development skills


We are running 'Codefest' this Easter, a software development technical event helping students to progress and use the latest technologies. We are hoping to raise £180 to fund multiple Raspberry Pi 3 B+ to be awarded to the winners of the Easter event, which takes place on 27th March 2019.


The event exists to encourage students to apply their Software Development skills in a less formal learning environment. In addition, Codefest promotes teamwork and peer learning. The event also allows introducing cutting-edge topics and use of latest technologies that otherwise would not be possible to cover as part of the main curriculum. Codefest has been running every month since October 2018.

Where will the money go?

  • If the full target is hit, the Codefest winning team will be awarded Raspberry Pi 3 B+ 
  • If the minimum amount is hit, the Codefest winning team will be awarded small computing accessories, such as mice, memory sticks, etc. 
  • If more money is raised, the amount that is left will be added to the prize fund of the next Codefest
