Today we’re happy to announce our Search For A Star & Sumo Digital Rising Star Code finalists!
This year was the biggest yet, with 405 programmers completing our first round C++ Hacker Rank test. Our fantastic round two judges have spent their time playing some amazing games and delving deep into our students’ code to ultimately choose five Search For A Star and five Rising Star students to move onto the Finals Day interviews.
We’re proud to present this year’s finalists along with their creations – all of which are free to download and play!
