The CajunCodeFest is a coding competition that focuses on transforming "data” into real-world solutions. Each year a new theme is selected for the challenge focus. This exciting event brings together innovative thinkers and programmers of all types: professional software developers, software designers, undergraduate and graduate students, educators, and entrepreneurs. In 2014, the CajunCodeFest was recognized for fostering innovation in the community by the local chamber of commerce with a pretigious award. Winners have gone on to participate at the national Health Datapalooza competition and other pitch competitions.
