For 6 weeks, Java lovers will compete to win the title of Java Champion of Germany. The contest takes 15 minutes during which one's the participants have to answer to 21 questions. A correct answer results in a score of plus 2, a wrong answer results in a score of minus 1. When you skip a question, you win nor lose points. The total score will be the cumulative score of all questions answered within the set timeframe of 15 minutes. The contest allows the usage of three ‘jokers’.
- The "50/50", forcing the online test to take out half of the possible answers to a question
- The "Ask the challengers", where the percentage of the other challengers choosing each answer is displayed to you and
- The "Bonus question/Ask a friend", in which the challenger sends a bonus question (after the regular 15 minutes) to a friend in the course of the 6-week Challenge. The friend provides the answer and the score is adapted with the result.
Cognizant will use the contact details of the participants for the following purposes:
- To deliver the prizes to the best participants
- To share the results of the challenge and ask for testimonials to some participants
- To inform the participants about internships or job opportunities at Cognizant
The details of the scores will be released privately in your personal dashboard at the end of the Challenge, so that the answers can't be shared among players. The leaderboard is only displaying the top 20 participants.
