Friday was a terribly exciting day for CoderDojo CIT as the judging of the coders work took place. Not everyone wanted to enter and that was grand too and they enjoyed looking at others entries or helping fix last minute crisis in projects or just working on their own next project.
Others queued outside the main meeting room where there were six judges who were loving their job as judges. They loved it I think because they had lots of chocolates on the desks for everyone to share and because they got to play lots of the coders games. The judges shamefully admitted at the end that they were shown up for their lack of knowledge on pop music, soccer and general knowledge!
So many thanks to our judges Lorcan McLoughlin, Michael Loftus, Glynnis Dennehy, Angela Donohue, Marese Bermingham and Margaret Linehan. They were beaming with smiles for all of the competition entrants and all of the entrants were beaming when they came out with their laptop ..and chocolate.
