Kotlin Heroes Programming Contest

    JetBrains has partnered with Codeforces to promote Kotlin among sports programming enthusiasts. Codeforces provides Kotlin developers with a platform on which they can compete in algorithmic programming and hone their skills. Together with Codeforces, we are launching a series of competitions called Kotlin Heroes .


    Sports Programming- These are intellectual competitions, the participants of which write programs for solving clearly formulated algorithmic problems within the framework of severe restrictions. The difficulty level can be different: any developer will cope with some tasks, and for the right solution you need to write very little code; other tasks require extensive experience and knowledge of special algorithms and data structures. Codeforces is a platform that provides both professional developers and students from all over the world an exciting way to learn and improve their programming skills.

    The first Kotlin Heroes competition will be held at Codeforces on May 28, 2019 at 17:35by Moscow time. It will last 2.5 hours and will include a set of tasks designed for both beginners and experienced programmers. Participants in the first three places will receive prizes in the amount of 512, 256 and 128 dollars, respectively. The top 50 participants will receive a Kotlin Heroes T-shirt and a Kotlin badge. Finally, anyone who solves at least one problem will be able to participate in the draw of one of the 50 T-shirts of Kotlin Heroes. Kotlin

    programming languageJetBrains was introduced in 2011, and the first stable version 1.0 was released in 2016. The current language version is 1.3. Kotlin meets the needs of application developers in a wide range of fields. This is a statically typed language designed to write concise code, which has less “form” and more content. It allows you to move from applications that are just a few lines long to projects with millions of lines of code. Kotlin was not designed specifically for sports programming, but it is great for this area. Kotlin reduces the amount of stereotyped code that programmers have to read and write, almost to the level offered by scripting languages ​​with dynamic typing - all this with the tools and performance of a statically typed language.

    Competitions are a great way to test your knowledge and learn new things from your rivals. It doesn’t matter if you were involved in sports programming before. We are sure: Kotlin Heroes will be a useful and interesting tournament for all Kotlin developers, especially since everyone has a chance to win a prize! If you like Kotlin, we hope you will participate in the next Kotlin Heroes, and maybe even start using Kotlin in other competitions.
