Two days down, two to go

Two days done and another enjoyable day’s coding. We did something a little bit different this afternoon (especially after everyone’s been working so hard), and our tutor Tanya gave a short presentation about her work with Artifical Intelligence. 

It was fascinating and hopefully our young coders will benefit from seeing programming in a real-world, and cutting edge environment. However, (perhaps inspired) they were still keen to get back to their own coding for the last hour!!

Some places are still available on our holiday programme next week
