The 3 day long programming camp was inaugurated at Mymensing Freelance IT Academy. The second camp was held at Z.H. Sikder University of Science and Technology on 4th November
A girl studying at high school or at a university was eligible to participate in the competition. The BdOSN’s program coordinator Mr. All Rabbi said,“ In spite of the increase of the girls’ enrollment in the educational institutions, their participation in the computer programming contest is rare. To overcome an unknown fear to participate in this competition and to make computer programming popular, we have arranged this Grace Hopper Computer Programming Camp’.
