Sogeti Codefest

The challenge asked “Have you got what it takes to prove you’re the best by competing against other talented developers & Coders ?” There was only one way to find out... by joining our Codefest during the Summer of 2021.

Sogeti launched this exciting 10-day challenge in 13 countries: UK, Ireland, Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, France, Spain, Germany, Sweden, Finland, Norway, USA and India

Competitors played, practiced, and demonstrated their skills as they challenged other participants.
