Manila, Philippines – Regional e-commerce platform Shopee has announced the launch of Shopee Code League, a league which is aimed to help upskill coders through workshops and challenges designed to enhance programming abilities. This initiative is available to tech coders of all levels from across the region.
The Shopee Code League will last for two weeks, and will feature a series of exclusive online training sessions organised by Shopee and two rounds of coding competitions that let participants solve algorithmic puzzles designed by the Shopee Engineering team.
Initially, the league had three different tracks, namely data science, data analytics, and programming. This year, to cater to the need of more coders keen on learning about algorithms, the league will focus on offering the following topics: Python programming, C++, Go, data structures and algorithms, and dynamic programming.
The Shopee Code League 2022 is open to all interested individuals and top performers can win cash prizes amounting to S$25k (more than ₱950k). Participants also stand a chance to join Shopee to grow their careers in the tech landscape.
Martin Yu, director at Shopee Philippines, said, “We are excited to support a new generation of tech leaders and enthusiasts who want to learn and improve their skills through Shopee Code League. The initiative proved to be successful each year and we will continue to enhance our programs so that our participants can take full advantage of the opportunities Shopee is offering. We are inviting all tech talents to join and learn how to maximise their potential.”
