At Hays Digital Technology, we love to get involved with the tech community, and we’d therefore like to thank everyone who participated in the recent Hays Hack to find the best coder across the UK. We had almost 550 entries and are thrilled to announce our national winner of the UK Hays Hack Competition 2018.
We’d like to congratulate our first place winner, Leigh White from the Midlands region, who chose an iPad Pro as the winning prize after completing the Hays Hack in record time.
We asked Leigh what made her move into software development and her thoughts on winning the Hays Hack competition:
I found the 16 week course a steep learning curve, but it was so enjoyable that I was engaging in my own projects outside of the 9- 5 teaching hours. I’m now a year into it and I’d like to see myself in a leadership role in the future - there aren’t many female leaders in software development, and I feel it’s really important that we have visible female leaders in this industry.
I was in shock when I found out that I had scored 100% in the Hays Hack competition and am really pleased to have won.”
We would also like to take this opportunity to congratulate our UK Graduate winner and Professional regional winners.
