November 17th




Finlandsgade 20, 8200 Aarhus N

Come and test your collaboration skills and win prizes, when our friends from Trifork join us for a fun and informal coding competition – Extreme Carpaccio! This is a great way to get started with competitive programming. You don’t need through-the-roof coding skills to participate – a collaborative and problem-solving mindset will get you far! This is a good opportunity to hang out with your study buddies while using your skills and having fun at the same time.

Everyone is welcome – come alone or as a team of study buddies!


In teams, you will solve a number of challenges in the form of HTTP requests sent to you by the game facilitator. For every response sent back to the server, the teams will be rewarded points or penalties. In the end, the team that has the highest score wins.

There is no need to form groups in advance – we will form groups on the day. But if you join with a friend or study buddy, we will make sure you get on the same team.
