Scaling up Plymouth University
When i-DAT (the Institute of Digital Art and Technology) and Plymouth University played host to the Festival of Code, it needed to scale up its Wi-Fi capabilities to cope with an influx of 1,000 young people operating multiple devices in a few, very concentrated locations.
The success of the event means we have played a part in empowering brilliant young minds.Birgitte Aga, Creative Director for i-DAT, Plymouth University
