Thursday 14th October, at Ca’ Foscari University in Venice, the event Hackathon organized by JEVE, Junior Enterprise of Ca’Foscari University of Venice, took place, finally live, in collaboration with JTP Informatica, a leader company from Veneto region focused on Information Technology services and on giving IT support to companies and professionals.
Hackathon: an opportunity for young students
An hackathon is an event which sees the participation of several IT experts whose aim is to find innovative solutions for an IT query, generally related to web programming.
Hackathon organized by JEVE is an important occasion for Venetian university students to challenge themselves as they participate in a real team competition with programming shots. Those youngsters enrolled in the IT course of Ca’Foscari university had the chance to put into practice their own knowledge within the IT field by means of a practical exercise focused on web programming, created by the web team of JTP informatica. By working in teams, the students were able to meet new colleagues, also sharing points of views and ideas to finally do the exercise in the best possible way.
At the end of the given period of time scheduled for the event, the outputs of the various teams have been assessed by a jury from JTP Informatica who indicated the three most worthy projects.
Prizes to be awarded and sponsor
Many are the sponsors who, given their collaboration with JEVE, have taken part to the local initiative, proving to be close to this student association of Ca’ Foscari University in Venice. JEVE actually is part of the global network of Junior Enterprise and it reports to JE Italy.
Also Patrizia Volpato’s team took part to this event as a partner, offering the first prize to be awarded: a modern table lamp that we entirely produced ourselves. It is a lamp in hammered aluminum and elegantly sandblasted glass, that perfectly adapts to any area of your home which needs an extra source of light. In particular, three lamps have been offered for this event to which Patrizia Volpato participated with great pleasure, given its attention to the continuous support of young activities within its local territory!
