Discussion and the Q&A


Programming experience(I hope you all have some…if not..then you'll have one during this code camp) and of course learning INTEREST is the most.

Can I prepare to Code Camp ?

Yes. During code camp week we will brainstorm a software idea, design it and code it. Getting good ideas might sometimes be hard and thinking about different ideas before code camp makes it faster to get into coding part.

I have an exam in Code Camp week ?

You are free to go exam, but code camp in intensive course and idea is to focus coding during the well, so it is recommended you prepare to exam before the code camp week.

Grading ?

  • Idea and presentation of the Idea in wiki: 25%
  • Coding of the implementation: 25%
