CodeFest 2013: The first hackathon held in Ohrid
Created on 2/26/2013 9:49:59 AM
Last weekend the first “Codefest” hackathon was held in Ohrid, at the University for Information Science and Technology "St. Paul the Apostle". Seavus and SEDC were one of the supporters and general sponsors of the 24-hour coding marathon that gathered more than a hundred IT students.
The participants were working in 13 teams on different projects on different Microsoft platforms. All of them successfully managed to create working versions of prototypes from their ideas which were then showcased. Their ideas ranged from event aggregators to mathematical games and even to a school/university schedule manager.
The students from the SEDC Code Academy also joined the competition divided in two separate teams. The teams were supervised and mentored by Hajan Selmani, Microsoft® MVP and a trainer at SEDC, and Orce Petreski, Senior Developer in Seavus Gaming, who both helped the students successfully finish their projects.
The level of quality of the built prototypes and betas was another noteworthy aspect of the hackathon. The best two teams at the end of the hackathon were rewarded by Seavus and SEDC. Most of the participants plan to continue working on their projects and hopefully we will see some of them on various marketplaces very soon.
