How long will CodeCamp last?
CodeCamp will take place from Monday 25th July to Friday 5th August 2016. Each day will last from 9:00am to 16:30pm. CodeCamp only runs on weekdays, so you’ll have the weekend to chill out and recharge!
I don’t think I can attend all the days of CodeCamp, can I still apply?
If you are successful in obtaining a place, you will be expected to attend each day of the course. If you are aware of any reason you cannot attend the full course you should disclose this on registration. Kainos will consider exceptions individually if they are only for short periods e.g. a day. Any longer than this means that unfortunately we will not be able to offer you a place.
Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
Yes, please do! We will use the ticket to ensure that you are you (and not your evil twin who may have stolen your ticket) and we will also use a little piece of new programming technology to register you as present.
Can I update my registration information?
Yes, in fact we encourage it! There is a whole month from the opening of registration to the start of CodeCamp and you could learn a thing or two before then! Make sure to tell us any experience or ability you have with programming and don’t worry if you don’t have any experience, that’s what the camp is all about.
Is my registration/ticket transferrable?
Your ticket is non-transferable, but email us if you have any urgent changes in plan, and we will try to accommodate you and release your space to someone else.
What can / can’t I bring to the event?
If you have an Android Phone or tablet, please bring it along. However, please be aware that you can only use these in order to test your apps as you develop them- you are not allowed to record any of the events. Also, please make sure to bring your ticket and a parental consent form (which will be shared with you before CodeCamp starts). Apart from that, you only have to bring yourself and something for lunch. There are plenty of places to eat around Queen’s University.
What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?
There are absolutely loads of transport links in order to make your way to Queens University. You can even take the train this year and dismount at Botanic Station and walk for 10 minutes or the next stop which is City Hospital and walk for 5 minutes until you reach the events location at QUB Elmwood Building. How handy! There’s also the bus that will drop you right outside Queens, this is the Translink Metro 8 or you could get the Translink Metro 9 which drops you off at Lisburn road and you can walk just a few minutes from either drop off point. Finally there is on street parking just outside the QUB Elmwood building. Top tip is to be in early to grab a space as they do fill up fast.
Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?
We are aiming for Years 11-14 for applicants as we are looking to target people yet to choose their further or higher education. For any queries, please contact us. All applicants will need to complete a consent form and an enrolment form, which will be shared with you before CodeCamp starts
