Turing’s latest demo comp goes retro…

I Want My MTV

Turing’s latest Demo Comp delivered some seriously fast-paced fun! And solid coding skills, too. Principal Architect at SPR Saleem Siddiqui said, “I am regularly impressed by the quality of the projects produced by Turing students. The originality, teamwork, and problem-solving spirit of the students shines through their work.” He continued, “As someone who is heavily invested in the technical hygiene of software systems, I'm encouraged to see that almost every group emphasizes how they did TDD, CI/CD (including deployment to Heroku or equivalent), pair-programming, backlog management, and retrospectives. Learning these habits early in one's career is vital to continued success.”

Another judge, Software Engineering Manager at Hearst Di Tang, was equally impressed by how our students delivered really high-quality work within such a short period of time. “It strikes me that the students not only come together to apply their knowledge to the projects, but also continuously learn new technology and explore best approaches for challenges they encountered throughout the process,” she said. Spoiler alert! Re: the winning project, Rec.Me, Di noted:

“They have modern design, solid application architecture, fully working functionality of music recommendations, and games. I would love to use this app or integrate it as a feature in our Hearst Magazine websites!”

Not to mention…THEIR VIDEO. Do yourself a favor and watch it now!

Most musicians would agree that obtaining a dedicated practice space is one of the hardest things about scheduling rehearsals. Rüm connects musicians looking for practice space with hosts who want to fill their empty rooms with music...think Airbnb for artists.
