Online Coding Competition

Due to COVID 19 preventing us from hosting WERAU, we instead hosted Australia's first online coding competition with support from the Redland City Mayor, Karen Williams and Lord Mayor Adrian Schrinner. With over 250 participants from around Australia, participants put their programming skills to the test in a online coding arena, battling it out to be the best programmer!
