We’re going overseas
That’s right. We’re taking a small team to Jersey for the Fintech Hackathon. Not too sure if we’ll get anything built there but we certainly have enough enthusiasm to try. If you’re going to be there… come say “Hi”.
Aidy and Ian feeding themselves up whilst Shane sorts out the blog uploads from behind the camera.

Gary burgess interview
Gary Burgess was interested why a team from guernsey attends a Jersey hackathon, it’s fun however I likened it to the Tech equivalent of the Muratti, so let’s hope the under 18 guernsey Muratti team beat jersey today and like us hope to come away with the trophy.
Stu grabs some of last nights pizza for lunch
At the pub with our new Brazillian friends
We all needed to get away from our laptops for a bit. Obvious choice was the pub. Cheers!

Give.gg Is live, done our presentation with a live system working.
Presentations in full swing
We are watching the presentations unfold. Some very unique ideas being shown. Nothing quite as good as GIVE though… We might be a little biased of course
Getting back to Guernsey
Other than Ian, team Guernsey is arriving back home after an epic weekend of code, pizza and very little sleep. See you again next time.
