Grok Code Quest

Grok Code Quest is a friendly five-week competition where thousands of school students come together to learn to code. Teachers can sign up their students, and students competing individually at home are also welcome. Grok Code Quest 2016 ran for 5 weeks, from Monday 31st October until Sunday 4th December. Programming challenges were released at the beginning of each week, along with interactive notes that taught the participants everything they needed to complete them.

Grok Code Quest taught students how to program as we go along, rather than expecting them to be an expert already. With four streams to choose from and problems ranging from simple to challenging, there was something for coders of all experience levels.

Martin Vrana, Peter Novak and Joshua Silverberg have joined Grok Code Quest at beginner and intermediate level. They have spent hours solving multiple programming tasks that got each week harder and harder. They did a remarkably good job among the 5,000+ participants worldwide, with Martin Vrana coming first in the intermediate division with a perfect score, followed by Peter and Joshua coming short only by 1 unsolved task. Besides working on the intermediate level, Peter has also participated in the beginners’ level in which he came first without losing a single point.

The achievement of these students is exceptional and they did a phenomenal job staying engaged for 5 weeks. Congratulations to all three of them.
