MSc students' hackathon success

06 November 2015

Congratulations to the three students from our MSc in HPC with Data Science who won a prize at a recent hackathon event organised by MakeItSocial and Skyscanner.

Ludovic Capelli, Patrick Schiffman and Adarsh Janakiraman were part of the Bill Share team who won a cheque for £350 for their "super innovative peer-to-peer payment system for cost-sharing between flatmates".

"We hope we can motivate fellow students to also show initiative outside the classroom. The hackathon was a great learning experience for all of us and allowed us to connect with many local companies like Mallzee, the fashion app that hosted an HPC dissertation in the past." Patrick Schiffman, MSc in HPC with Data Science student
