Top U.K. technology undergrads compete to develop a solution to challenges faced by three of J.P. Morgan’s charity partners in Europe
Nov 30, 2012
The firm’s first-ever “Code for Good” Challenge, hosted recently in the London office, allowed more than 80 of the United Kingdom’s top technology undergraduate students to demonstrate their coding abilities to business and graduate recruitment representatives.
During this two-day event, students competed to develop a solution to a challenge faced by Centrepoint, WaterAid or the Nature Conservancy – three of J.P. Morgan’s charity partners in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
The students, representing 15 different universities, coded in teams for more than 30 hours to create a wide range of applications and technical tools to solve real-life challenges. The winning team, from University College London, built a sophisticated and engaging web-portal to build awareness for the work of the Nature Conservancy, a charity that develops ecological preservation solutions around the world.
