The IT Code Fair includes four major activities including Software and Poster Competition, Coding Workshop and the chance for students to meet potential employer.

The event is supported by the ICT Industry Association of the Northern Territory. It will be attended by the Minister for Corporate and Information Services, Hon Peter Styles MLA who will be opening the event and Vice-Chancellor of Charles Darwin University, Professor Simon Maddocks.

Software competition

Postgraduate and Undergraduate students who created apps, programs, mobile prototypes, websites, games that demonstrate their developing knowledge can submit these products in the competition. This is open to all students who are enrolled in one of our degrees (e.g. BIT, BIS, BSENG, MIT (SE), DIPNE, BCAIBI, BCNMIT, BENGIT etc). Entry can be individual or as a group.

Poster competition

This year the IT Code Fair will also give the opportunity for postgraduate and undergraduate IT/IS students to “poster” present their IT/IS projects on topics which they have been working on. Entries will also include an abstract of the project. Individual entry only.

Employer speed dating

Graduating Masters and Undergraduate students, and students needing work placements, will be given an opportunity to meet local employers in the Speed Dating event. Twenty places will be available to students who wish to be involved in two categories: Developer Speed Dating and IT Support Speed Dating.

Students will be asked to take a seat in front one of the employer spaces. They will then have one minute (60 seconds) to provide an overview of their IT vision, skills, capabilities and competencies. A timer will then ring. Employers will have two minutes to ask students a series of questions. A timer will then ring. Students will then move to the next employer.

Hour of Code Workshops

Four one-hour workshops will be run for local high school students. These workshops are run in support of the global ‘Hour of Code’ initiative to develop coding literacies. No previous coding experience is needed.
