Shopee Code League 2021 continues its quest to nurture tech talents and upskill workforces by gathering like-minded communities for an intense competition of problem-solving and knowledge sharing in the world of coding. This year’s Shopee Code League will see coders from China joining the competition together with participants from Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam, the Philippines and Taiwan.

Shopee Code League is the largest code-from-home League in Southeast Asia and Taiwan and saw last year’s competition attracting 21,000 coders. 3,000 of those participants hailed from Malaysia with one managing a Top 10 place. The competition will be taking place from 6 to 20 March and will see teams of 2 to 4 people competing in three virtual competitions across data science, data analytics, and algorithms.

There are two categories in Shopee Code League 2021; one category is open for all participants while the other is open to students. The top-ranking teams of each category will see themselves walk away with SGD3,000 (RM9137.77) and a chance for a full-time or internship placement with Shopee. Shopee will also offer SGD500 (RM1522.96) as a special prize for the
top-ranked women’s team of both groups in a bid to encourage diversity and inclusion of women in tech.

Apart from the competitions, Shopee and its training partners will hold a series of free training workshops starting 19 February onwards to upskill and facilitate knowledge sharing amongst participants.

Pokdepinion: If I knew how to code I’d probably try my hand at this. For now, I’m pretty happy sitting on the sidelines and cheering on those who do join.
