The next Catalysts Coding Contest (aka CCC) will take place on March 31st, 2017. Did you know that this is our 25th CCC? We have enough confidence and expertise to organize it on a bigger scale than ever, in several metropolises! It will be spread around the world and thousands of developers are about to participate. In addition to Linz, Vienna, Klagenfurt & Graz in Austria, the contest will be held also in Lille (France), Valladolid (Spain), Hasselt (Belgium), Frankfurt (Germany), Cluj & Bucharest (Romania), all the way to Johannesburg (South Africa) to Kathmandu (Nepal) and more are about to come…
The journey has not come to an end. We are constantly getting inquiries from companies and universities that want to host the coding contest. We are very glad about that and we dearly consider every request!” says Christoph Steindl, CEO of Catalysts GmbH.
This event is a win-win for both:
- Participants, to challenge themselves and be visible in front of many companies. The CCC is probably the best way to compete with other software developers, to secure internships, as well as interesting job opportunities.
- Sponsors, to catch the brightest minds. Every year companies from the business sector support this event and can directly contact the best developers.
A brief insight into the contest itself:
There is a complex programming problem that has to be solved level by level, 7 in total (with increasing difficulty), on your own laptop, in the programming language of your choice, alone or in a team of max. 3 people (note: at the school CCC in the morning, teams of 10 pupils are allowed).
This concept has started as a scientific experiment in 2007, until today it evolved tremendously and it will continue to grow! If you are interested in becoming a part of the CCC community, in any role (participant, sponsor or host), don’t hesitate to give us a call, we are more than willing to answer any question!
