Slovenia – Comtrade puts education top of agendaBy Lewis - 23 July 2014
Comtrade Gaming held its annual EdIT summer school for young, aspiring computer sciences students, an event that has been already running for 18 years. EdIT is organised in three countries, Slovenia, Serbia, and Bosnia and Herzegovina across six locations with different topics chosen every year. The gaming focus this year was all about the development of Bingo game from scratch with the use of HTML5 technology.
The summer school is actually a full simulation of a real project as participants must tackle the challenges of teamwork, the project must be finished within a limited time with concrete results, and ultimately they have to present their solutions to a wider range of listeners and answer their questions. For 15 participants this was a unique and also their first real life experience of how a large commercial project is accomplished, and the result depended only on them.
Aleš Gornjec, General Manager at Comtrade Gaming (pictured) said: “Our corporate social responsibility policy is mostly focused on opportunities for young people, thus EdIT is a perfect way to give them a chance to get to know the real world of business, to give them practical knowledge and to discover young talents and invite them to join our company. We are very proud that this year they have developed a fully featured mobile bingo game in just two weeks.”
