Code camp gives individuals or teams (up to four in a group) the whirlwind experience of creating a web or mobile app in 24 hours. They want to see who’s up for the challenge.
A team will be placed in one of the following three competition level groups: Novice (junior/high school teams, beginners), Collegiate (DSC, SUU or others), or Professional (teams comprised primarily of full-time professionals). Teams are not allowed to pre-build or design any part of their app prior to the start of the event. There is no cost to participants thanks to industry sponsors.
Aside from the over $2000 in electronic games, cash and prizes for the winners, Code Camp offers individuals and teams an opportunity to network, add experience to a resume, and build friendships in the community. “Besides all the free food and cool prizes, it’s crazy fun!” according to Jeff Poulton, event chair.
Joshua Aikens, chair of the Dixie Technical Association says that Code Camp is not only a fun event, but a great opportunity to showcase talent in the region. “Every tech company in southern Utah is desperate to hire the best,” Aikens said. “Even in this economy, this industry is struggling to find people.”
