Our organising team is made up of enthusiastic volunteers who are dedicated to the cause of creating
opportunities for the youth to get to know the field of computer science. Many organsiers are
tutoring students or are taking part in talent development as a hobby beside their career in
We believe that today's mainstream methods of education are not suitable for portraying computer
science as an interesting and fun field, which is why we want to use our decades of experience in
teaching to popularize new ways of approaching informatics.
This challenge is one step in that direction. Our contestants will experience that the problems that
arise in the life of a programmer can be fun and enjoyable.

I am Weisz Agoston, a Senior Software Engineer at Google in Zurich.
I have spent my high-school years at the Fazekas Mihály Primary and Secondary Grammar School
of Budapest, in a mathematics-focused class, from where I have gone to ELTE for a research
MSc in mathematics.
Középiskolás tanulmányaimat a Budapesti Fazekas Mihály Gyakorló Általános Iskola és
I have won a bronze medal at the International Olympiad in Informatics, got first place at
the Sapientia international informatics olympiad, and got third place twice on the KPI-open
international team contest.
Since 2013, I have received an award from the prime minister every year for my successful
teaching - I have had at least one student on the international olympiads every year.
I am dedicated to providing the best possible education to as many people as I can.
In my free time, I cycle, ski and play football in the Google Zurich football team.
Main Event Organiser and Back-End Developer
I am Nora Szoke, mathematician and web developer.
Mathematics has been my passion ever since my childhood, I have succesfully participated in
a lot of contests as a high schooler.
I had obtained my Érettségi at the special mathematics class of the Fazekas Mihály Primary
and Secondary Grammar School
of Budapest, after which I continued my studies as a mathematician at ELTE, with a PhD at
abstract algebra on the
Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne university in École, Switzerland. After a couple of
years, I have abandoned research to pursue a career in web development in France.
Besides mathematics, I have always been very interested in teaching and nurturing talent.
I have taken part in organizing the Medve Outdoors Mathematics Competition in Hungary every
year since 2008.
As one of the founding members of the A Matematika Összeköt Egyesület in Hungary, I have
been teaching interested students mathematics for more than a decade.
As a hobby, I read a lot about biology and psychology, and do a lot of exercise: my
favourite sports are hiking, wakeboard, wall climbing and pole sports.
Main Event Organiser and Front-End Developer
I'm Kornel Szabo, a computer science student at the University of Cambridge.
I have spent my high school years at the special mathematics class of the Fazekas Mihály
and Secondary Grammar School. I have already done a lot of mathematics and competitive
programming in these years, which has allowed me to get bronze medals at the International
Olympiad in Informatics, the International Mathematical Olympiad, the Central-European
Olympiad in Informatics and a silver medal at the Middle-European Olympiad in Mathematics.
I was also successful in Hungarian competitions, I came second in the Hungarian Olympiad in
Informatics, and 10th on the Hungarian Olympiad in Mathematics.
In my final year at high school, I started teaching in Alphacademy, where we teach
programming for hundreds of students. I have already had some experience by that point, as I
had already helped with organising Pósa-camps as a high schooler.
My hobbies include running, cycling, hiking, wall climbing and reading about economics,
philosophy and history.

Hi! I’m Jeriel, a linguistics undergraduate student at the University of Cambridge.
I enjoy thinking about the structure and organisation of English and other languages. To me,
there are many parallels in the ways linguists go about thinking about the syntax (grammar)
of natural languages and the ways programmers issue computers instructions through the
medium of code — which is in many ways a language of its own.
My pastimes include constructing linguistic diagrams, teaching, keeping fit, and spending
time outdoors — walking about zoos and gardens.
Leader of Team USA
My name is Sean Li, and I’m an undergraduate student at the University of Cambridge studying
economics. I’ve spent much of highschool and college furthering my knowledge in business and
finance. For example, I participated in the Wharton Leadership in the Business World
program, where I studied financial transactions and negotiation techniques. I also wrote a
research paper about the student debt crisis and created an accompanying presentation—which
I received a top distinction in my state for. Outside of academics, I’ve performed flute and
piccolo at Carnegie Hall, and finished top 3 in my state’s chess competition twice. Other
than academics and extracurriculars, my personal interests include fantasy football,
traveling, and working out.
Member of Team USA
My name is Haoming Song (Pronounced “Hao” like “How are you”, and “Ming” like “Ming
dynasty”), and I am a freshman studying Computer Science at Stanford University. My defining
extracurricular during high school has been playing the cello, and have achieved numerous
awards such as winning the 2021 DePaul Concerto Competition and serving as principal cellist
for the 2020 Illinois Music and Education Conference Honors Orchestra. I served for three
years as a member of Midwest Young Artist Conservatory’s Young Scholars Program, supervising
and mentoring low-income students in learning the cello. My main academic interests include
computer science, and this January I had the opportunity to collaborate with six other
members of the Stanford Association for Computer Machinery in designing a neural network
that could read symbols from a text description and match them to their corresponding
primary descriptors. My personal hobbies include running, listening to music, and washing
dishes that my irresponsible roommates leave behind in the kitchenette.
Woo Jia Hao
Member of Team Singapore
Hello! I am Jia Hao. I started my journey in software at 15 and have been a part of
different projects — from developing gesture-based accessibility frameworks in Android to
conducting research in Natural Language Processing (NLP)! I also talk about software and
open-source on my blog and create guides to help developers lay their foundations in various
areas like Android development and version control. In my downtime, I like going for jogs,
watching Marvel shows, and hanging out with my friends.

I'm Guanzhou, a computer science student at the National University of Singapore.
My journey in computer science has been exciting thus far and I look forward to exploring
more domains in computer science. I love problem solving and algorithmic thinking and I am
particularly interested in software engineering and quantitative finance fields.
In my free time, I enjoy playing chess and racket sports such as badminton and squash
Member of Team Singapore
Hello! I’m Alvin, a Year 1 student studying Computer Science at National University of
Singapore. In the past, I have participated in a few Math Olympiad and Physics Olympiad
competitions, and really enjoyed trying to solve those tough problems and feeling the rush
of learning new techniques and concepts. In computer science, these problems are much more
dynamic and interesting, which is why I am excited for this opportunity to bring the joy of
problem solving to kids! In my free time, I like playing badminton, cycling and just being
