Middlesex University Dubai in collaboration with Oracle hosted the Code-Jam 2016, an inter-school and inter-university hackathon with over 100 participants from across the UAE. Students were expected to build web applications or mobile apps related to the topic of e-learning, e-government or e-health. Our judging panel consisted of eight distinguished personalities form academia and industry. Students were assessed on both creativity and technical skills and laptops and iPads were awarded to the first and second place teams in both categories (school and university). This event was part of the Second Annual UAE Innovation week, read more http://www.uaeinnovates.gov.ae/.
An event of this magnitude is indeed a team effort. Thanks to Felicity and her team, Naveed along with his IT team and Shashi and the finance team for all the support. I would also like to thank Nasir and his team along with our security officers for their help with the setup. A big thank you to the Middlesex Computing Society volunteers for their superb professionalism. More images on www.facebook.com/MiddlesexDubai
