IT Cup for students in Donetsk
Binary Studio supported the National Ukrainian Open Cup in programming for students (April 18-21), which was a qualifying stage for National Ukrainian Contest in Programming.
The National Ukrainian Open Cup is a multitier, team-based, programming competition, like International Collegiate Programming Contest.
The aim of the contest is to provide students of IT faculties with opportunities to interact with students from other universities and to sharpen and demonstrate their problem-solving, programming, and teamwork skills.
A particular thing about the contest was that parts of the Cup (Top Speed Coding, Team and Individual tournaments, and programming of robots) were mixed with master-classes and lectures from the partner-companies and sponsors.
Though Binary Studio was the only IT company which supported Donetsk National University to hold the event, the contest turned out really interesting and was on a very good level. Three developers from Binary Studio (Constantin, Nikita Sh. and Nikita S.) prepared a master class on “Development of real time web applications using coffee script and node.js stack”, which impressed both the students and the employees of Binary Studio who came to the cup to support our speakers.
The winner was the team from the Donetsk National University who also got the presents from Binary Studio.
Apart from that during the Cup we opened Binary Studio Academy 2013 and had the first qualifying test for the Academy, which the contestants passed quite well and we already have a few potential trainees.
The final lists of the students of the Academy will be ready after 4 more tests which will be held in the Universities of Donetsk (read more here).
To sum up, National Ukrainian Open Cup in programming for students was a great event which first off all gave the opportunity to young specialists to show their abilities, learn their weaknesses and hopefully to focus public attention on the next generation of computing professionals in the region.
