Qatar University’s Computing Club (QUCC) conducted a first of its kind Summer Bootcamp, in collaboration with Store974, aimed at enhancing the skills of the participants and giving them a hands-on experience.

The bootcamp was launched on 18th June with its opening ceremony focusing on introducing the event to the participants and allowing the participants to network with each other based on their interests.

The bootcamp offered three tracks which the participants can choose from depending on their interests – AI & Data Science, Web & App development, and Robotics. These three tracks were offered based on the growing potential of these fields in the industry.

Participants took part in teams of three to four members each, who then competed with other teams over the course of three weeks from 18th June to 9th July. The teams worked on projects of their choosing and were mentored by industry-experienced engineers as well as students who guided them in their projects in addition to having provided workshops in their respective tracks. The teams also presented their projects during progress meetings which were conducted weekly wherein they also received feedback from their mentors.

Throughout the duration of the bootcamp there was an active leadership board wherein the rankings of each team could be viewed. The teams were ranked based on numerous factors such as presentation, features, efficiency of their projects, etc., all considered by the judges. Based on these criteria, the winners of the bootcamp were awarded with prizes during the closing ceremony from store974. Team ‘meta2.0’ ranked third while team ‘while cool: code’ won the second prize and the first prize was bagged by team ‘:)’.

Maab Esam, a participant from team ‘while cool: code’ added that the bootcamp was “such a unique, eye-opening experience that broadens my horizons on the unlimited cool stuff that I can learn from the internet”.

With great effort by the entire management team at QUCC, Summer bootcamp 2022 came to an end with a closing ceremony on 9th of July with the presence of Mr. Timothy, the marketing manager of Store974, who sponsored the prizes for the winners. The President of QUCC, Sara Metwaly, commented “This boot camp was one of the greatest projects our management team had worked on, and on receiving amazing feedback from the students we worked harder to make sure it goes on smoothly. This success and accomplishment are the result of the hard work and dedication of our management team out there and I would like to take this opportunity to thank them for their efforts.”

All in all, this first of a kind Summer Bootcamp 2022 hosted by Qatar University’s Computing Club aimed to provide a memorable learning experience for the participants and fortunately, it succeeded in doing so.
