Accenture- Hour of Code

Accenture- Hour of Code

Today was a wonderful day full of new experiences and opportunities at Accenture. I learnt and discovered many things such as basic coding skills, new technology and jobs.

The day began with snacks and an introduction where we all introduced ourselves and got to meet new people.The staff were all absolutely great as well as Timoti who video called us from Sydney and shared his journey and passion about what it was like to be one of the few Maori/ pacific in Uni and the industry.

My favourite part of the day had to be when we were in the Mclaren room playing on the virtual reality game, it was extremely fun and interesting. In the Mclaren room there was a voice controlled speaker, a virtual reality game set and something similar to google glasses. Throughout the day we played coding games, watched videos, ate food and had loads of inspiring people talk to us.

It was ten times better than I expected it to be and the view and area was great. Overall today was an enjoyable experience that I am very grateful for.
