1st Year ‘Hackaton’ at Ericsson
All first year students were invited to Ericsson to participate in ‘Hackaton’ workshops. Students had the opportunity to work in groups of four, where they developed and presented a project based on the computer programming languages HTML and CSS. Winning teams were presented with prizes and all students got the opportunity to participate in a plant tour with a Senior Software Engineer. They engaged in a technique called ‘Mob Programming’, a concept familiar to all Ericsson staff, where a member of the team coded for seven minutes while the rest of the team observed and then rotated. This was a fantastic opportunity for the students and everyone thoroughly enjoyed it.
