Why participate?

Compete against the best Swiss programmers and meet new friends from all over Switzerland!
Take home your HC2 T-shirt and cup, win prizes, enjoy the free food, and have fun!

How do I compete?

You'll participate as teams (of 1, 2 or 3 people), trying to solve problems using a computer, by writing short programs in C, C++, Java or Python.
Your team will get one computer that you have to share, running a custom environment. You won't have access to the Internet, except for the reference documentation of programming languages and their standard libraries.
