For the 6th year, teams of developers from T-Systems Slovakia prepared fun games and activities to test the programming skills of students of information technologies and computer science at CoderFest. This festival already gained its recognition as the great event full of networking, games, grilled sausages and beer.
Our colleagues from various teams- Software Development & Design, Risk Management, Application Development, SAP Development, HR and City of Tevelopers interacted with students to create a lasting relationship with the new generation of developers in our region. In a market place set-up, they were approaching students directly and they were actively looking for new talents to complete their teams. With the upcoming Innovation Day 2019, organized here in Kosice by our colleagues from InnovLab TSSK, we encouraged all to register in InnovLab stand with their ideas to improve the health care in our region.
This mix of music, games, refreshments and presentation of the life of developers in our beloved company was again a big success with over 500 students and more than 30 developers present at Jedlikova 9 on October 15.
We prepared some additional activities to keep participants active throughout the evening. One of them was a VR games corner or PS4 station. Students had a chance to take group photos with the instant printing photo booth to take as a souvenir. On stage, the teams of students competed in various games with beer cups while answering trivia questions about the history of programming languages. The winners took packages of instant noodles and coffee and Coderfest T-shirts. Live band The Mysteries brought a few rock tunes to the room.
The most anticipated moment of the evening was, by no means, tombola. Five lucky winners went home with branded giveaways, 3 electric scooters (2nd, 3rd 4th place) and MacBook Air (1st place). Congrats!
We hope to see new youngsters joining our magenta family in the upcoming months and we are looking forward to meeting again in 2020.
