Former Coleraine Computing student receives his BCS prize

Jason Mitchell who recently graduated from the University of Ulster with a 1st Class BSc Hons, Computing (Game Development) visited us last week on the Coleraine campus. He was invited back to receive his BCS award for top student in the Faculty of Computing and Engineering (2010-2011) and also to chat to our current final year students. Jason now works as Software Developer at Blacklight Software in Leeds and so he was able to provide good advice on surviving final year, gaining employment, and moving away from Northern Ireland. Jason is one of the most naturally gifted programmers to have studied Computing at Coleraine so it’s always fun to catch-up with him and chat about his latest project, which he often writes about on his blog site.
