Aside from being a place to show off the skills possessed by participants. KKC is also an opportunity for Indonesian women to get jobs in the positions they dream of.
Algobash provides an opportunity for participants who have good skills and performance to be able to conduct job interviews with sponsoring companies..
Algobash sees that the opportunities for female programmers to be able to work are minimal. The involvement of women in technical positions has a very large impact.
Even according to research, even though the involvement of women in the IT industry is only 11%, they have a very significant role in the progress of the team.
KKC 2022 is a hope that Algobash has carried for a long time. This competition can also be a means for companies to find new seeds in the programming field among the participants. In addition, this competition can motivate Indonesian women to continue to develop their potential as developers.
