The CCC started as an experiment

In 2007, two friends and our former colleagues, Christoph Steindl and Christian Federspiel, conducted a study on test-driven development and pair programming.

In order to find suitable volunteers for their experiment, they organized a public coding contest at JKU university in Linz, Austria. This was the very first CCC.

It took place on the 6th of July 2007 with 35 participants. Fast-forward to today – thousands of participants from over 40 cities, 20 countries, and 3 continents compete at our global events every year.

We are proud of what we have achieved so far and are ready to grow our beloved CCC further!
