JetBrains Hackathon 2013: Winning Project Weighs in at 100 KG
A few days ago our St. Petersburg and Munich offices together held an exciting Hackathon. Dozens of teams put their regular projects aside and devoted 48 hours to designing and coding their own new product.

We decided to open the code fest to company

JetBrains wins IT Table Tennis Cup 2013 in St. Petersburg, Russia, for 2nd year in a row!
