JetBrains Becomes an Official Coding Tools Sponsor of Major League Hacking in Europe

mlh_jbJetBrains has been committed to supporting the next generation of software developers for many years. We believe that students, teachers and academic institutions should have access to the best possible tools, and there shouldn’t be any price tag attached to that. We were all learners once!

Over the years, JetBrains has provided Classroom Licenses to more than 6,000 educational institutions, and a few days ago the number of students who have received JetBrains Student Pack crossed the 400,000 mark.

JetBrains is always looking into new ways to support the community, and Major League Hacking has been on our radar for a few years. MLH are powering over 200 weekend-long hackathons engaging more than 65,000 students around the world, providing valuable expertise and support to event organizers. Many JetBrains employees are huge fans of hackathons too and, in fact, we have our own JetBrains hackathon organized annually for employees and guests.

We are pleased to announce that JetBrains has partnered with MLH for this hackathon season! As an Official Coding Tools Sponsor of Major League Hacking EU Season 2016-2017, we are providing access to JetBrains Toolbox.
