SLIIT students emerge champions at Calcey HackathonView(s):
Three final year students of SLIIT walked away with the grand prize at the recently organised Calcey Hackathon, an inter-university hackathon hosted by innovations company Calcey Technologies in commemoration of the firms 10th anniversary. The competition attracted teams from all major state universities. Teams had to develop a solution to a real world problem given to them by coding continuously for 2 days. The SLIIT team, comprising final year Software Engineering and IT students Amodth Jayawardena,Thameera Sajith and Rashith Jayasekara, presented a solution for an Android Mobile application and a web based application.
The goal of a hackathon is to have programmers ‘hack together’ a working piece of software that addresses a real-world product requirement, in double-quick time. The emphasis in a hackathon is on meeting the specified product requirement, using whatever coding shortcuts available for the programmers.
SLIIT recently introduced a new Software Engineering specialization in its B.Sc Special (Honours) Degree in Information Technology. The first software engineering batch will graduate in February 2013.
