With the success of cloud initiatives, both in the Federal and Commercial sectors, we have seen the demand for Java Developers jump significantly, helping deliver major projects that increase companies’ web and mobile presence,” says Eric Galasso, President of TSGi. “By sponsoring these high school level competitions, we are helping nurture and cultivate the talented young minds that will be the driving engine for our nation’s future technology innovations. We are pleased that AACC has been a leading force to organize and host this competition and provide an opportunity for our local high school students to showcase their talent in Java programming. Congratulations to the winning teams for their hard work, dedication, and collaboration in building great JAVA programs during this competition,” adds Eric.
This event was organized by Wendy Chasser, Faculty – Associate Professor at AACC, in conjunction with AACC’s Computer Science Club. The teams had 90 minutes to work on ten questions about logic in programming and then write four high-level Java programs. “The schools competed for trophies, cash, and other prizes. We saw significantly greater interest from the local high schools this year to participate in this competition,” says Wendy Chasser. “It is great to see local companies like The Squires Group stepping up their support of AACC in helping our local high school students compete to harness their IT skills, which are currently in high demand,” adds Wendy. “Based on the feedback this year too, we are going to continue with this competition next year,” concludes Wendy.
