Code Challenge Cup CCup

11/30/2012 - 2:00 AM

The developer community has been active with numerous hackathon sessions, meetups and workshops this year. Undoubtedly, the tech scene of the country is trying to build up a better developer community through these activities. In order to support the developer community, the Developer’s Connect Philippines (DevCon) will be hosting the Code Challenge Cup (C-Cup) at Xavier School, 64 Xavier Street, Greenhills West 1500 San Juan, Metro Manila on November 30.

All programmers and developers are invited to attend this programming competition. This event will help pull out the skills of latent programmers and developers. A new talent might spring from this very competition. This Code Challenge Cup is aiming to trigger the minds of every participant in order to solve problems under time pressure. Their critical thinking and problem solving skills will surface in the event as they try to provide an answer to every problem.

This great event is based on the Association for Computing Machinery’s International Collegiate Programming Contest which is considered as the oldest, biggest, and most prestigious programming contest in the whole world. It is then called as the Olympics of Computer Programming by IT geeks.

Participants will be given 6 hours to solve 10 problems. Worry not. You can solve the 10 problems under a team with 3 programmers each team. You can also choose your desired programming language such as C, C#, C++, Java, JavaScript, PHP, Python, Ruby or VB.Net; and your trusted workstations. Everything is designed for your convenience. The teams who are able to solve the problems correctly in the fastest time will be declared as winners. There will be a penalty of 20 minutes for every unapproved run for the problem. The victors will be taking home trophies and medals; and a cash prize of P15,000 to the overall champion. High school and college students will have their own contest categories. Participants will also get the chance to snag shirts and free refreshments as they keep up with the six hour hackathon.

If you register early up until November 16, you will receive amazing discount rates. If you are a student, you’ll have only a fee of P360 per team while professionals are P500 per team. The regular registration rates are P500/team for students while P800/team for professionals until November 23. This C-Cup will only accept 20 teams so you’d better register early to save a slot. If you’re a walk-in participant, you will be charged P800/team for students while P1200/team for professionals.

This event is made possible with the support of Globe Labs, Ideaspace, SMART DevNet, Accenture, and Its community and media partners are WebGeek, Orange & Bronze, and Mozilla Philippines.
