Do you have what it takes to compete with the most talented coders in the world?

We want to find out. That’s why, once again, we’re helping organize OpenBracket, the coding competition that pits some of the top coders from across the globe against each other in a series of fintech code sprints.

The online trials for this year’s #OpenBracket will take place from Aug. 4–6 via HackerRank. Here’s how it will work:

  • First place wins a cool $5,000
  • Second place takes home $1,000
  • The top 100 will land a stipend to travel to Wilmington, Del., to compete in the finals (Oct. 20–23)

Those finalists will compete for more than $100,000 in prizes (twice as much as last year). Find more details on the competition and sign up below.
