Comtrade Gaming Educates Computer Science Students

Wednesday, 23th July 2014, Ljubljana, SloveniaComtrade Gaming, land based and online gaming software provider, held its annual »EdIT«summer school for young, aspiring computer science students, an event that has been already running for 18 years.

EdIT is organized in three countries, Slovenia, Serbia, and Bosnia and Herzegovina across six locations with different topics chosen every year. The gaming focus this year was all about the development of mobile bingo game from scratch with the use of HTML5 technology.

The summer school is actually a full simulation of a real project as participants must tackle the challenges of teamwork, the project must be finished within a limited time with concrete results, and ultimately they have to present their solutions to a wider range of listeners and answer their questions. For 15 participants this was a unique and also their first real life experience of how a large commercial project is accomplished, and the result depended only on them.

Aleš Gornjec, General Manager at Comtrade Gaming said: “Our corporate social responsibility policy is mostly focused on opportunities for young people, thus EdIT is a perfect way to give them a chance to get to know the real world of business, to give them practical knowledge and to discover young talents and invite them to join our company. We are very proud that this year they have developed a fully featured mobile bingo game in just two weeks.”

EdIT Summer School for future software developers started in 1996 as a small project with only 10 participants, and has become a traditional regional program over the past decade and a half. Today, this project boasts 18 years of tradition and a growing reputation as a quality program. Each year more students want to participate in all three countries where EdIT is organized (Slovenia, Serbia, and Bosna and Herzegovina). The growth of the number of applications from different universities is proof that EdIT follows and nurtures the development of the profession, and offers current programs for new knowledge development that are needed in the IT industry in order to stay competitive.\edit
