— We want to make coding better understood, more accessible and sexy. Our aim is to find coding world’s Kimi Räikkönens and Sebastian Vettels, comments Ville Valtonen who is main organiser for the event.
The event is supported by the mobile gaming company Supercell and the Finnish creative technology company Reaktor. According to Talouselämä, the organisers are expecting 10,000 teams to participate the championships.
The teams need to have 1-3 members and the sign up for the teams ends on April 7. The actual coding starts on April 14 and finishes at the end of the month. After that the teams are chosen for the qualifying rounds. The finals are held on June 5 in Helsinki.
Reaktor organised first coding Finnish championships in 2012, and over 200 teams took apart to the event.
