This project received pledges on Fri 22 Nov 2019


We are running 'Codefest' -- a software development technical event aimed at helping students to progress and use latest technologies. We are hoping to raise £300 to fund multiple Raspberry Pi 4 B to be awarded to the winners of the event, which takes place on 11 December 2019.


The event exists to encourage students to apply their Software Development skills in a less formal learning environment. In addition, Codefest promotes teamwork and peer learning. The event also allows introducing cutting-edge topics and use of latest technologies that otherwise would not be possible to cover as part of the main curriculum. Codefest has been running every month during term-time since October 2018.

Where will the money go?

  • If the full target is hit, the Codefest winning team will be awarded Raspberry Pi 4
  • If the minimum amount is hit, the Codefest winning team will be awarded small computing accessories, such as mice, memory sticks, etc.
  • If more money is raised, the amount that is left will be added to the prize fund of the next Codefest event, running in February 2020
