Somebody can ask what sport programming is and why to organize such events? – Sport Programming is a kind of intellectual competition where the participants have to demonstrate their programming skills in the classical meaning. Performance at such events often brings many benefits not only to beginners but also for those who have years of experience in software development. The fact is that, on the one hand, tasks proposed for such competitions are often taken from real projects and are just the most interesting and nontrivial part of the related issues. On the other hand, it is quite useful to learn strategies for finding solutions basing on team approach or test and debugging methods compilation that are used in competitive programming.
This year the championship counts three divisions for the participants of various levels of programming skills: from the first one for real professional with approved experience of participating in such challenges, to the third one – for very beginners. Total amount of participants this year reached 250, including programmers not only from Ukraine, but also from Russia and Belorussia, which allow calling this event an international programming championship and adds value to every participant.
