Cairnshill and Wellington win W5 Web Competition FaceBook Twitter GooglePlus Email


10th March 2016


Allstate W5

The W5 web design competition was held in the amazing IT suite in Strathearn College on 10th March, with 10 schools competing both primary and post primary to become the Allstate Young Software Engineers 2016. All the websites were of a very high standard including PHP coding, embedded videos and Scratch games and online quizzes.

The teams were asked to design a website from scratch about the Blue Society. All the had were notes and resources they had prepared, some Go Berserk books for help, and their knowledge of HTML, CSS and PHP and a lot of team work.

STEMAmbassadors Strathearn School Belfast

After lots of difficult deliberations, the judges eventually awarded the KS2 Young Software Engineer prize to Cairnshill primary school and the KS3 Young Software Engineer prize to Wellington College.

Well done to everyone who took part.
We were really impressed!

On a trip to Kathmandu in Nepal for the charity HOPE Worldwide, Daniel Doyle and Jing Jing Tao taught two sets of children how to make websites using Go Berserk materials.

Gareth McAleese started teaching pupils at St Joseph's College the Go Berserk materials in an after school Tech Club. We were expecting some 12-13 year old pupils, but word got out and we needed up teaching a lot of 12-13 year old pupils as well as sixth form pupils, one of whom is intending to complete the Make Code Work 4 U certification. In two days he went through Go Berserk books 1 and 2 and is now well on the way to becoming a certified web genius.

Go Berserk nominated as candidate in the European Business Awards FaceBook Twitter GooglePlus Email


10th September 2015


Go Berserk was nominated as a potential entry in the European Business Awards for Northern Ireland. We attended a great meeting at the headquarters of RSM McClure Watters in Belfast, and talked with the other candidates about how to make businesses successful. Good luck to the Solmatix Renewables entry that was selected to represent Northern Ireland at the awards.

European Business Awards

Go Berserk's contribution to the discussion was summarised as follows in the RSMEye publication for November 2015:

Discover It
Discovery is at the heart of a recently established business, Go Berserk, who provide children and young people (some as young as 8 years old) with the skills to design and develop their own web sites.
Whilst many are aware of the worldwide programming opportunities they were inspired by the discovery that primary school age children are more responsive to learning the programming skills required. Gareth McAleese, one of the co-founders, pointed out:
"Younger children have no fear or inhibitions. !ey easily take on board new ideas and skills and we as a business look to do the same, setting ourselves apart (and ahead) of others."
