Kode Indonesia contests are online programming practices and competitions, where software developers/programmers from all over the world can compete for fun, or to get in contact with companies they like and that are recruiting.
From a recruiting perspective, the aim of the contests are to give participants the opportunity to showcase their programming skills regardless of their level of education or their professional background, to apply to companies wishing to recruit a trainee, an employee on temporary or permanent contract, a self-employed worker or other, to be put in contact with the latter at the end of the contest and possibly be hired for the job or one of the jobs selected, taking into consideration the performance they have achieved at the Kode Indonesia contest.
At the same time, Kode Indonesia contests are an opportunity for participating employers to be put into contact with a community of programmers/software developers in search of jobs and to recruit applying candidates who meet their expectations.
The evaluation of participants is objective and is done on the platform through an automated system configured in order to evaluate the solutions submitted by participants.

Code submitted by participants for each question will be compiled and evaluated according to the following criteria:

  • Points are awarded when the solution is sent to the platform. On the basis of this evaluation, for practices, each participant will receive a score calculated using the following formula: sum of points for each practice passed.
  • For competitions, we use ELO based rating system. All users start with 1500 rating. The probability of a user with a rating Ra being placed higher than a person with a rating Rb is equal to:  

With the above formula, we calculate every user’s expected rank in the contest. If your actual rank in the contest is better than your expected rank your rating will increase, otherwise it will decrease. And the amount of change will depend on a lot of factors, including but not limited to performance of other users, the number of competitions you have participated in. There is also a limit on how much rating you can gain or lose in a single event which depends on the number of events you have taken part in.
