A weekend-long event where students will work collaboratively on a team to build a tech-related project in 30 hours

This Code Jam is geared for George Fox University students to turn technological and creative ideas into real-life, practical projects while working in a welcoming and supportive atmosphere. This is the place to showcase your creativity and innovation, as well as create something super cool outside of the classroom.

The goals of this Code Jam are to:

  • Provide student networking opportunities with industry professionals

  • Help build student portfolios (for internship/entry-level job applications)

  • Encourage learning and improvement

  • Practice public speaking and presentation skills

  • Have fun and get to know others in the department


All projects are to be properly presented in Gitlab which repo links will be given access and provided to you two hours in advance from hacking time. A reminder that early commits before hacking time will likely result in disqualification from awards.
