Java Challenge by Groupe Open

Do you think you are capable of becoming Belgium’s champion Java? From March to April 2017, the company Groupe Open organizes in Belgium the first Java challenge.

The first round is played online. Our finalists will then compete for the 2017 Champion Java title at the end of April.

How to participate?

Registration is open during the entire duration of the challenge. You only need to register on EditX.

How is the challenge organized?

You will have 15 minutes to give the correct answer to as many questions as you can. The questions will be multiple-choice with one or multiple good answers.

The challenge allows two options: the "50/50", in which the computer eliminates half of the answers and "Ask the challengers", in which the percentage of the challengers choosing each specific option is displayed to you.

After you complete the Java Challenge, you will see your result for that Challenge immediately, but not the answers. We are emailing the answers to all players at the end of the Challenge, so that the answers can't be shared among players during the Challenge.

At the end of this round there will be 10 finalists. If you are qualified, your username will be posted on the leaderboard and announced to all the challengers via the Challenge Results email.
