Wednesday (9th June) saw the School of Computing, Engineering and Information Sciences put on its second annual graduate show. The VIP part of this went well and if I had any advice for any students out there its this. If you are given the chance to exhibit your project at a graduate show, do it! You will not regret it. For the sake of a few hours of your time, you could end up walking away with some decent opportunities.
In my case I went not expecting much and as such didn't have a fully working product (See other complaints about mystery issues that no one knows how to fix). Despite this I left with the chance to get it working with the possibility of the product being produced or sold. While this is not a guaranty that it will happen, how can you turn down such a chance?
The basic point I'm trying to make is that as dull as some shows may sound, take the chance, you never know what may come from it.
