Challenge24 is an annual programming contest organized by the Electrical Engineering Students’ Hungarian Association. Hundrets of teams participate in an onlline qualifying round. The best 30 teams of three participants each are then invited to the final round in Budapest.
In the final round each team has a time limit of 24 hours to solve a bunch of tricky tasks, however without internet or any help from outside.
This year, two teams from Austria reached the final round. Both teams comprise (solely) Catalysts employees who compete against each other as well as against the world.
We cross our fingers for them to come as far as possible—though they already are part of the world’s best 3%.
Teams: Bernhard Niedermayer, Johannes Vamos, Mathias Hauser (not on the picture); Thomas Scheinecker, Joachim Sauer, Wolfgang Ebner (not on the picture)
