A key objective of Teleios Code Jam is to inspire participants to be creative and explore the possibilities through software, and what better way could we drive the point home, than to “walk the talk”. Enter Team Unbeatable, an exhibition team from within the ranks of Teleios. This team, whose members change each year is a staple at every TCJ, and although they are not allowed to compete they are dedicated to putting their best foot forward, bringing a fun, fresh and honest perspective to the experience of software creation, whilst embodying the principles that the TCJ is built upon.
