Our tour of lectures kicks off at Abertay; the home of the current champions

The challenges first lecture, as per tradition, was held at the University of Abertay in Dundee. This time last year we were nervously waiting for students to arrive for our first ever lecture and arrive they did!

This year, we knew how dedicated the staff and students were but that didn’t stop being surprised by the large crowd that had gathered before our own Lee Kenny and SERI’s Manfred Bortenschlager had even reached the venue!

A crowd of 61 students packed out Abertay’s biggest lecture hall deep in their Kydd street building to hear what Lee and Manfred had to say about the second instalment of the exciting challenge!

Lee talked over the format of the competition mentioning the changes to the platform, making a switch to Android, the additional  codeathon support and a longer time frame!

With a number of teams already formed and students staying behind to pick our brains, we left a surprisingly sunny Dundee with our next lecture in our sights. A train trip down the East Coast Main Line to challenge newcomers University College London!

Where next?

We’ll be heading down to the big smoke tomorrow as Kings College London plays host to our lecture on Wednesday 10th October at 2pm in KC2.31
