Competitions aimed at discovering talented developers are being held across the nation. Amidst the plethora of development competitions, the Ellice Code Challenge, dedicated solely to ‘backend engineers’, has successfully concluded.


I am pleased to announce the completion of the Ellice Code Challenge, a competition dedicated solely to ‘backend engineers,’ amidst a flood of development competitions held nationwide.

Over 700 backend and full-stack developers in employment participated in this challenge. This competition stood out as it went beyond mere coding skills, presenting missions that a ‘backend’ developer might tackle in real-world scenarios, thus eliciting creative solutions.



Online preliminaries conducted on the AI education practice platform, Ellice LXP

The online preliminary rounds were conducted via the AI training practice platform, Ellice LXP, from November 25 to December 4. Participants could choose their testing times within this week-long period, resulting in a high turnout from working professionals.


The preliminary questions were designed to test the developers’ logical thinking, analytical skills, and problem-solving abilities through a total of five questions covering algorithm tests and technical proficiency verification. Since Ellice LXP allows for automatic grading, all participants were able to check their results in real-time, and the score compilation and announcement of results proceeded smoothly.



Every challenge matters! ‘Live Coding Explanation Session’


An online live coding explanation session was held for all participants, regardless of their advancement to the finals, to ensure a meaningful challenge experience.

This session was conducted by Ellice content developers who directly coded and solved problems in real-time within the LXP’s practice environment. Over 60 participants actively engaged through the live chat to resolve their queries, making it a meaningful and satisfying experience.



Execution of practical, reality-based missions

It was a challenge that involved performing practical, real-world missions instead of typical algorithm problems found in usual competitions, which many working participants found to be special and intriguing. In fact, the highest scorer, current developer Lee Hyun-seop, commented, “There have been many competitions focused on solving algorithm problems, but this is the first time I’ve seen a competition centered around backend topics. Although the problems were challenging, the detailed environment made them feel like issues that could actually arise during work.”



The offline finals that maximized engagement

The successful conclusion of this code challenge targeted solely at backend engineers was made possible thanks to platforms and development environments such as ElliceLXP and ElliceTEST, along with operational expertise. Recently, many companies have shown great interest in backend code challenges. Choosing a platform that ensures smooth and effective operation is essential for a successful development competition.


The Ellice platform offers a one-stop service that includes evaluation, grading, and management, and it can handle tests even under high traffic volumes without any issues. Additionally, the platform can be customized according to a company’s specific requirements, from orientation to the setup of a pre-test environment, allowing for flexible organization of development competitions to suit each company’s situation. If you are planning an in-house development competition or code challenge, consider using the Ellice platform. Consult with a professional consultant for more detailed information.
