Demo Recording: JetBrains Educational Products for Competitive Programming

JetBrains is honored to be a sponsor of the International Collegiate Programming Contest (ICPC), one of the oldest and most prestigious competitive programming contests. On November 6 we held JetBrains Knowledge Day 2020, marking the beginning of the ICPC season and academic year.

Olga Telezhnaya, Software Developer at JetBrains Educational Products, shares insights about how our products can give a professional advantage in competitive programming. In particular, our integration with Codeforces, an online platform for programming competitions and contests, makes it possible to solve tasks right inside JetBrains IDEs in one of the supported languages: C++, Java, Python, Kotlin, Scala, Rust, Go and JavaScript!

In her talk, Olga also gives an overview of JetBrains Academy, a hands-on platform for learning to program, and provides tips about efficient ways to study programming.

She also presents JetBrains Educational IDEs and explains how they can be used in various scenarios both for learners and educators.
