Crash Course Studios: You should take your chances!

As the codeathon stage of the Samsung Developer Challenge is coming to an end, we took some time out to catch up with one of the Codeathon winners to see what they made of the 24 hour coding madness!

We’ve been talking to Cameron from ‘Crash Course Studios’, one of the University of Abertay teams that impressed us back in November, and since their checkpoint submission, have continued to do so!

SDC: Having braved the 24 hour codeathon in its entirety, have you enjoyed yourselves?

Cameron, Crash Course Studios: Yes, the codeathon was a fantastic experience. It created a stronger bond within the team and allowed for an extended period of work. Also the opportunity to meet the other teams and new people was great. The process allows us to gain more experience in the development process and is a great opportunity.

You were one of the lucky three. How did it feel to be a winner at the codeathon stage?

Winning the codeathon was great and unexpected, because there were larger groups than ours. Winning was a huge boost to our confidence, which will drive us forward in the future.

Are you confident of your chances to reach the Grand Final?

Winning the codeathon has been a large boost to the team’s confidence and drive. It will make us strive harder to reach the grand finals. We now have confidence in our idea and the ability to reach the grand finals.

What would you say to anyone who asked you if the challenge or codeathon was worth participating in?

I would say that in life you get chances and you need to take them when they come. The Student Developer Challenge is one of those chances that you need to take, and I would wholeheartedly tell anyone to take part.
