*A “coding challenge” is a gamified bite-sized online problem-solving competition. It shows a software engineer’s technical skills; her/his approach to problem-solving; their ability to understand requirements and think clearly under pressure.

This fun coding event will take place at Annabel, Rotterdam, during Upstream Festival 2023.

Those who cannot attend the coding challenge can still participate online by signing up on this page. Once the challenge begins, we will send you the link to the competition.

It is not possible to register as a team. Individuals are eligible to participate in this coding event.

Please bring your laptop for the most comfortable setup. We cannot guarantee laptops on the spot.
