Sparta Web Devs Win IG Hackathon


Our recent class of Web Development graduates participated in a Hackathon in aid of the charity, Teens Unite. The challenge was to build something which would help prevent spam and hoax applications for their application system.

Our team built a new application form which had spam protection and validation checks on certain form fields. Our aim was to reduce the number of bad applications which a real person had to deal with. It was hosted by our friends over at IG, in their beautiful Cannon Street offices. Tom, Stu and Chris were all very excited by the rooftop bar! After a 10 hour hack and a lot of pizza, they presented their product back to IG’s judges and won the top spot! It was iPads all round!
