TASKS AND EVALUATION
Complete anonymity was an essential part of the championship. Judges received solutions with encrypted names. Therefore, nobody except organizers knew the names of the winners up to the award ceremony.
Below are the tasks prepared by the judges for EU Web Challenge.
"I'm just really, really happy that I was a part of such a great event and at the same time I feel sad that everything came to the end. As for me, it was a huge step forward, new awesome meetings, useful knowledge and a lot of the things that make me happy! Thank you very much."
Oleksii Khomenko, Front-end (HTML):
"This was my first championship on web development. Everything was great. I got motivation and huge experience, which I look forward to implement in my future projects. Great atmosphere, amazing venue, lots of acquaintances and super useful feedback from judges. I look forward to the next EU Web Challenge".
Alexander Pomaz, Team
"Fast! Hard! Fun!
A good way to check your team in a stressful situation with limited time. This is the moment, when you have to focus only on the main task and discard the rest. Thank you all for the championship! It was cool!"
