Why should you host a Catalysts Coding Contest?

What’s in it for you and what do you have to do?

Catalysts has been expanding Europe’s biggest Coding Contest to a worldwide level since last year. On March 22nd, 2019, coders from around the world will compete in a challenge that lasts for 4 hours. There will be two tracks, the already well-known Coding Contest as well as the School Coding Contest. The School Coding Contest is organized only in selected venues on the same day, with an example for pupils (up to the age of 19 years and newbies), lasting only for two hours. In the past many pupils also attended the main CCC right after participating in the school CCC. A lot of them could easily keep up with students or practitioners.

We have been organising CCC since 2007 and have grown it since then. Around 11.000 participants from more than 60 cities all over the world have been taking part in the CCC since 2017. Coders can attend at selected locations but also remotely (online). The aim of the contest is to leverage the visibility of coders around the world, open up job opportunities and promote hosts and their venue. A single local “champion” can gain worldwide reach and recognition in the community. Every contest will attract more talents which everyone will benefit from. If your goal is to attract new coding talents or if you want to leverage the visibility and value of a coder - this event is the right one for you.

What we are looking for are motivated partners/hosts that take up this opportunity. By inviting local businesses to sponsor and support the event (infrastructure, prizes, buffet...) as a host you would gain even more exposure. By hosting a contest we are sure you will increase your visibility for top coding talents. No matter if you want to host a contest for 20, 50 or more than 100 participants, we will support you. Our advice: start small!
