Upper School Students Join BlueMetal and Microsoft Experts for a Hackathon

Three Upper School seniors joined experts from BlueMetal and Microsoft for the Microsoft Cloud Workshop: IoT on the Edge on February 5. Jack Davey, Kurt Williams, and Ryan Austin worked side-by-side with product developers to examine real business case scenarios. Thanks to current Parker parent Mark Arbogast, the students were able to hone their coding craft and gain valuable insight into the information technology industry.

Mark said in an email to the School, “Jack, Kurt, and Ryan represented Parker exceptionally well today. These young men were engaged, relentless, and excited. It was a real pleasure having them with us. I also think their minds were opened up to new possibilities.”
