CherSoft sponsors student hackathon

Here at CherSoft we're always keen to build relationships in our local community. To this end we've been visiting the universities of the great city of Sheffield over the last few months, hoping to meet the coding prodigies of the next generation - as well as getting to see some extremely cool hacks...

The Diamond

We were delighted to sponsor HackSheffield, our local Major League Hacking stop, hosted at the University of Sheffield's magnificent Diamond building - a purpose-built centre for teaching engineering. Teams of intrepid students worked around the clock for 24 hours to build cool stuff, with CherSoft running a competition for the best use of geospatial data.

The judging was extremely tough, with plenty of fantastic hacks to choose from, but Team FootFall walked away with the CherSoft prize (a quadcopter each) along with 2nd place in the overall competition.

We frequently visit careers events as well - if you didn't catch us at the Autumn Jobs Fair, we'll be talking to maths students on 14 April and have numerous other events in the pipeline. And if you're a talented student programmer seeking a summer internship or heading for graduation, we'd love to hear from you. Here's more about working for us.
