JetBrains is a proud sponsor of the 46th and 47th ICPC World Finals, set to take place in Luxor, Egypt. As part of this event, we’re excited to showcase the incredible capabilities of Kotlin in algorithmic problem-solving.

See the talent of top-tier competitive programmers as they tackle Kotlin challenges in a unique blind coding challenge format. They’ll showcase the art of problem-solving under pressure and the power of Kotlin in action in a format where one participant has only a keyboard, and the other has only a monitor. It’s an unparalleled test of skill and adaptability!
