Participants in Bloomberg’s coding competitions span the globe. The winners of the latest contest, in partnership with the Standard C++ Foundation (the flagship C++ conference) and CppCon, came from Romania, Russia and across the U.S. including Georgia, Illinois, Massachusetts and Texas.

Across seven weeks of competition, contestants were provided a different set of problems to solve via Bloomberg’s cloud-based CodeCon platform. The student who solved the most problems in the least amount of time in that week’s contest was deemed the winner and was awarded a trip to Bellevue, Washington to attend CppCon September 20-25, 2015.

Congratulations to all seven winners! Although we are still in the process of confirming eligibility, we look forward to meeting you all in Washington next month.
