Danish Championship in programming 2019

Are you ready to compete with other university students to become Denmark's best programmer?

On the first weekend in October the annual Danish championship in programming - or more officially: the NCPC - Nordic Collegiate Programming Contest - takes place at various Danish universities.

From the 2018 NCPC contest in the HCØ Canteen

The University of Copenhagen, like a number of other Danish universities, host a local competition. At the same time, teams from Aarhus, Aalborg and Odense, as well as a number of Scandinavian universities.

How does it work?

There is room for 35 teams of 3 people. The teams compete against each other and against the teams at the other universities. There will be one Danish and one Nordic winner. The top three from the Danish competition move on to the Northern European semi-finals. From here, 10 teams can advance to the World Cups.

How do you enter the competition?

You can sign up here -  you have until 2 October 2019.

The competition arena is booked - now is the time to start practicing!

The canteen at the H.C. Ørsted Institute is already reserved for the big blast. Last year, first place did not go to a UCPH team but to a group from Aarhus University. So it is now you start training so that KU can regain the honor as the university that has most often been in first place and won a travel check of DKK 10,000.

Need extra motivation for the training? Then sign up for coding competition and Friday bar in DIKU's Student Canteen on 20 September to see if you are in top form for the Danish Championship.
