IEEE WIE Student Branch Affinity Group, University of Kelaniya

ZorroSign is proud to be a sponsor of this year’s Game of Codes at the University of Kelaniya in Sri Lanka!

Game of Codes is a program idea initiated by the IEEE WIE Affinity Group of the University of Kelaniya as an inter-university game development competition. The main goal of this event is to uplift the knowledge of game development among undergraduates, especially girls.

The Game of Codes brings together beginners and participants who have intermediate knowledge of game development across the country into one platform filled with competitiveness and enjoyment. Participants are given basic game development knowledge through two workshops conducted by industry experts. The event consists of two phases, two-day workshops and the competition called Battle of Coders:

  • Workshops – The participants will be guided to develop a game with basic functionalities.
  • Battle of Coders Competition – Teams will be given the opportunity to take part in a 24-hour competition. The teams should come up with a game according to the given criteria.

The final submissions of the game is evaluated by a panel of judges in the relevant domains, and the best three teams are rewarded in appreciation of their talents.

The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) describes itself as “the world’s largest technical professional society – promoting the development and application of electrotechnology and allied sciences for the benefit of humanity, the advancement of the profession, and the wellbeing of our members.” The society took the lead in organizing activities such as awareness sessions and technology workshops.

IEEE Women in Engineering (WIE), an affinity group of IEEE, is the largest international professional organization dedicated to promoting women engineers and scientists. It plays a vital role in inspiring girls worldwide to follow their academic interests to a career in engineering. The mission of IEEE WIE is to facilitate the global recruitment and retention of women in technical disciplines. IEEE WIE envisions a vibrant community of IEEE women and men collectively using their diverse talents to innovate for the benefit of humanity.

IEEE Women In Engineering (WIE) Student Branch Affinity Group of the University of Kelaniya focuses on working with Women Engineers to increase the interest, awareness, and involvement of technical disciplines. We aim to encourage and inspire young females to do something more than what they are doing and becoming.

ZorroSign is grateful to help sponsor this exciting event and supports all of the IEEE engineers as they lift women up to innovate for the benefit of humanity.
