Because of the current Corona-regulations, Masters of Java 2020 will have a different shape than last years, this year it will be fully online. The whole event will be finetuned to this new form, you can not miss this. As you might expect from us: The assignments will be challenging and many teams are able to join.

New: Masters of Java Sneak peek | September 24th

We noticed quite some developers are anxious and excited to register. Am I good enough? What if i can’t solve any of the assignments? We hear these arguments often, therefore we proudly announce Masters of Java Sneak Peek on thursday September 24th. This pre-event will be fully digital and since it’s a foretaste of what to expect, the teams only have to solve one assignment during the time-limit. This way attendees can get used to the setting and level. We are convinced that the new attendees will be full of enthousiasm to join the real Masters of Java 2020.

Everyone who joins the Masters of Java (Sneak Peek) will also obtain entrance to the J-Fall conference.

About the competition: The Masters of Java is a famous funprogging contest (based on Java SE), which is accessible to every Java developer. This competition does not test the API knowledge, but the real programming skills. In previous editions, Masters of Java has already produced a lot of heated battles. We hope to see a lot of fireworks again this year. In every round, a fun or interesting programming assignment is handed out, which must be solved within half an hour. You score a point for every second you have left.

Teams consist of a maximum of two developers and the team with the most points at the end of the day may call themselves “Master of Java 2020”. Besides eternal fame, you can win beautiful and spectacular prizes.

The assignments are unique and non-google-able.
