The International 24-hour Programming Contest, also known as Challenge24, is held every year in Budapest on the last weekend of April or the first weekend of May.
Teams of three solve complex programming, artificial intelligence and mathematical problems during the 24 hours of the final round. Challenge24 is one of the few contests where participants are free to choose their tools, platforms and programming languages, and problems are presented only using open file formats.
Solving the problems requires a diverse set of skills including artificial intelligence, algorithm theory, mathematics as well as a background in physics or engineering. Besides the ability to produce working code in short time, good team work and efficient communication are necessary to take up the challenge. Since the tasks are solved under heavy stress, stamina is also an important component of a successful team.
