Demo Comp happens once an inning at Turing. Students work under an aggressive timeline (two weeks!) to build an application from scratch. And they are encouraged to step outside of their comfort zone. Our students are increasingly integrating TypeScript, performing frontend and backend unit tests, and using some form of CI/CD.
Engineering Manager at Clorox Corporation Brian Jenney said, "The work was excellent overall. These clever and unique projects covered many tools and processes from deployments to testing." And—as someone who’s seen his fair share of live presentations go awry, he really appreciated the time our students spent to develop their pre-recorded presentations.

Heirloom, organic grains and pseudocereals are a niche agriculture market in which a farmer and food maker have traditionally connected by word of mouth. There is no rolodex or online space, making it hard for farmers to find buyers and vice versa. This app solves that problem with an easy-to-use platform, giving visibility to growers and a robust list of available grains to potential buyers.
