Spotify sponsors the Swedish National Programming Championships

We’re suckers for a good programming competition here at Spotify so we were really happy to be a sponsor of the Swedish National Programming Championships which took place this past weekend. The contest was held at five of the best technical universities across Sweden and was part of the larger Nordic Collegiate Programming Contest which is held in 15 cities across Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark and Iceland.

Some of the best and the brightest students and professional programmers take part and we were excited to see one of our own developers take home the top prize. In fact Erik’s team, Lag Bernhardsson, has won the competition an astounding five times which is quite an achievement.

Congrats to everyone who took part and hopefully this sets up a good run at the North Western European Regional Contest (NWERC) in November in Germany.
