Summer Codin’

As part of the Wellington tech scene, we’re pleased to be involved in the Summer of Code 2.0 internship programme.

Summer of Code is based on a Google initiative where top IT university students are placed into IT start-ups and established businesses to work for the summer holidays.

It’s the second year that the Summer or Code has been run in New Zealand, and is organised by John Clegg from ProjectX.

The 20 host companies this year include Xero, Mindscape, Plan HQ, Trade Me and YouDo.

Our two interns are Ryan Chard and Balsam Al-Dabbagh. Both are final year undergrads at Victoria University – Ryan is completing a Bachelor of Science majoring in Computer Science and Balsam is finishing a Bachelor of Information Technology. Balsam is working in our product team in testing and business analysis, while Ryan is working as a junior developer.
