The first round of CodeIT Season 2018/19 (marathon) will be held online for 3 weeks. The round includes one task, for which every participant has to reach the optimal solution compared to the other contestants. “CodeIT not only stimulates the professional development and improvement of the young people involved with programming, but also gives them the opportunity to meet people with similar interests and lay the foundations for future beneficial professional cooperation.” shared Prof. Hristo Beloev, Rector of Ruse University “Angel Kanchev” and patron of the first round of the contest.
