School Kids Rule at Coding Contest

The results from the Advent Programming Contest 2016 made it clear: The next generation of hackers will be awesome!

The front positions are dominated by students from school, who showed great problem-solving skills and also a lot of dedication to apply these skills! Running up are excellent coders from the "other" category, thus (often professional) coders who are not studying in a school or university.

The final ranking is as follows:
