Congratulations to Daire Homan, a fourth year student of Computing at ITB, whose team won the grand prize at the "Blockchain For Good Hackathon" event hosted by Accenture at the weekend.

 

 

The team developed an app titled "Block-K9", which is a blockchain application for verifying micro-chipped dogs identities. The app won the top prize of 8500 Euros and a trip to France to visit Accentures blockchain research lab.

 

 

Well done to all involved!

 

 

 

What our students say...

"Basically the course covers everything to do with digital and online media. I had it as a hobby in sixth year but when I came here I learned so much more."
