Students impress with coding challenge

Students from the School of Computing Science recently took part in a coding challenge posed by GCHQ, who came and set up the challenge as part of the Computer Network Operations Specialists (CNOS) recruitment campaign.
The aim was to find gifted students who have complex coding and problem-solving skills, talents needed to work in both cyber security or cyber intelligence roles at GCHQ. Two challenges were set: a coding challenge and a "find the bugs" challenge. For the coding challenge, students had a limited time in which to write code to draw a doughnut on the screen. Prize winners were James McLaughlin (BSc Computer Science) and Stuart Maitland (MSc Neuroinformatics) who both provided very good quality solutions. Prize winners selected from a number of good answers were Martin Smith and Geoff Whitehead (both BSc Computer Science). The winners each received a £25 Amazon voucher. Congratulations to all winners!
