Cream of the Code?

Think you cut code like a boss? Then this competition is for you. The Codehire Cup is on a quest to find Australia’s best professional and student programmers.

Unlike many of the hackathon competitions going around, we dare to be different. You’ll be competing as individuals trying to solve specific problems as fast as possible to take home cash, prizes and glory!

The competition begins with the preliminary and semi-final rounds being held online. If you’re one of the top competitors during these online rounds, you’ll be offered a spot in our live finale at Fishburners in Sydney, and have the chance to share in over $10,000 in cash and prizes.

Registration is free so what have you got to lose!?

Showcase your skills to the judges

During the finale, competitors’ solutions will also be assessed on code quality and approach. Speed won’t be the only way to impress our experienced judges!
