Feedback from last year's event


Attendee Feedback

  • “It was a great opportunity to meet the employers of the IT field. We got to learn about their company, what they look for in the people they hire and met new people with similar interests. I learned how to think commercially as well as technically. The Hackathon was great to be a part of!”
  • “Spending a day in a room full of tech enthusiasts from various backgrounds gave us new techniques to approach problems and it was a great platform for peer to peer (P2P) learning.”
  • “The facilitators really went the extra mile to ensure everyone got the most out of the event.”
  • “I would like to say a big thank you to the team who did a great job of making us all feel welcomed, well fed (lollies, chips and drinks included) and I was really impressed with how well organised the event was. There was also great communication from the team. Very grateful for being a part of this event”
