Calling all coders
Feb. 18 is deadline to apply to JPMorgan Chase's Code for Good Challenge
11:29 a.m., Feb. 14, 2013--Students, think you have what it takes to change lives with your coding skills? Then JPMorgan Chase invites you to apply to the Delaware Code for Good Challenge, an event that will enable students to creatively use technology to address a social challenge for a leading non-profit organization.
Any University of Delaware student interested in technology is encouraged to apply online by the Feb. 18 deadline.
Students may apply individually and if accepted into the challenge, the company will coordinate placement in a team. Alternatively, students may form a team of four to six people in advance and note their preference on the application form.
The codefest will be held over the weekend of March 1-2, where students will code in teams to showcase their vision, imagination and skills and have the chance to prove what they are capable of achieving.
Participation in the Code for Good Challenge will also give students the unique opportunity to work alongside JPMorgan Chase technology mentors and judges.
Prizes will be awarded to the winning teams. In addition, students may have the option to further support the non-profit organization by developing the technical solution created during the challenge.
Coders will need to bring their own laptops to the event, but JPMorgan Chase will cover the cost of travel expenses, though conditions apply. Details and instructions, including the event location, will be provided to successful applicants.
Interested students should visit the Code for Good webpage for more information and to apply.
