The Developer Student Clubs UWC aims to make a great impact at UWC as a campus by improving the community through impactful technology and peer-based learning.
The core team will be comprised of me(Stephen) as the lead and some help from the existing UWC Math Club steered by the Department of Mathematics and Applied Mathematics and a core team of students that can be seen on our page (https://cs.uwc.ac.za/dsc_uwc)
An information session was held and the turn was great. We can not wait to see more students and share our plans to make our campus fun and exciting through technology.
Next week Thursday Google will be having its annual team-driven competition, Hashcode in which students are given Google engineering problems and must solve them and submit through the judging system, winning teams are sent to Google Ireland for the final round and the DSC UWC is the official host for our campus this year and we look forward to having many students take part in the event. The event takes place on Thursday 20th February 2020 at 19:30, the venue is still to be confirmed
Over the course of this year, the DSC UWC is gong to host peer learning sessions in Web Development as well as Google Cloud technologies on how to build, scale and deploy apps. As well as some cool hackathons/ Many of these sessions will be facilitated by working professionals like the Google Developer Groups as well as Google Developer Experts who are responsible for supporting Developer Student Clubs and we would love to have more students from IFS part of our club to ensure that we carry out Google`s mission to upskill and have more developers building sustainable solutions to problems, this in turns helps students become better coders overall in a class environment ready for industry
