History of CodeGrade¶
CodeGrade originated as project in the Project Software Engineering course at the University of Amsterdam. The project emerged from our own frustrations as both students and teaching assistants in computer science at the UvA. As students we lacked meaningful feedback to give us insight in our grades for programming assignments. And as teaching assistants the amount of overhead required to actually grade programming assignments in the traditional way, in addition to the lack of providing useful feedback in a counter-intuitive environment made the work very frustrating at times. This still drives us to create a product that can revolutionise programming education to this date.
