Computing students welcome industry expert

Computing students learnt about a specialist area of programming when an industry expert visited the college on Thursday (February 28).

Alan Parkinson, Founder and CEO of Epsom-based company Hindsight Software, spoke to students on the Level 3 and university-level qualifications about design patterns in programming.

The students learnt why patterns are needed in programming, how they are designed and the different ways in which they are used in the industry.

Joseph Hanke, Head of Business and Computing at Nescot, thanked Mr Parkinson for giving up his time to come in and speak to the students.

“The students came out of the talk buzzing and inspired, so we’re looking forward to seeing the results in their programming work,” he added.

“We’re always keen to welcome experts in to speak to the students. They learn about the latest developments in the industry, and it also helps them to find out about different career options.”

Hindsight Software was set up in 2012 to support behaviour-driven software development, which was in turn created to help bridge the communication gap between business people and software developers.
