SAN DIEGO (PRWEB) June 03, 2017
Underground Elephant, an award-winning digital marketing technology company located in downtown San Diego, will participate in mentoring and judging the Codechella competition on June 3 at San Diego City College.
Codechella is a regional coding competition for more than 100 Information and Computer Technology students at both the middle and high school levels. Underground Elephant Senior Dev Ops Engineer Todd Foley will be volunteering as a mentor to advise students on potential coding careers and to help them tackle challenges in developing code for different devices. The second half of the day will involve a coding competition which Foley will participate in judging students’ entries.
“We are always looking for opportunities to mentor and engage the next generation in tech and coding careers,” said Jason Kulpa, CEO of Underground Elephant. “There is incredible potential in these students, encouraging and fostering them while they are young will help to mold their future career paths and ultimately open up greater opportunities to them in the future.”
Underground Elephant has actively worked to support undergraduate and next-generation students in the local community by hosting tours and educational sessions, making the Codechella event a perfect fit. Codechella includes two categories, one for middle school students, Spheros, and one for high school students, Robots (NAO); each will feature 50 teams made up of pairs. The event will take place from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Saturday June 3 at the San Diego City College.
