This is an individuals competition, not a team contest – be fair!

    • Not this year :/ Last year I achieved a sufficient rank – 10th out of 155 participants and 3rd in the category “other” – to be invited to the award ceremony and informed I’d be receiving a certificate; this year… I didn’t have sufficient time :/

      Did you participate?

  2. Nope, I didn’t take part in any contests yet. All my efforts are now thrown on mastering advanced JavaScript skills. Decided to focus on becoming a front-end developer. Wish me luck 😉
