Testimonials

  • “In Jollybee, we really believe that grit and perseverance are keys to success. As a coach, I personally motivates each members to hone their skills through consistent practice and self-learning. We also empower our members by sending them to participate in various national and international contests. Based on my experience, Jollybee is the best community for hardworking talents to develop themselves.”

    Felix JinggaCoach, Jollybee
  • “Jollybee is FUN, and the current coach (Felix Jingga) is very generous! He often treats the students to a nice dinner with his own pocket money whenever they solve a problem in either practice or contest. There is a saying in Jollybee (not sure who started this): The chubbiest student is the smartest. Guess why! By the way, the current coach is undoubtedly fat (more than chubby), thus, he’s undeniably smart.”

    Suhendry EffendyFormer Coach, Jollybee
  • “Jollybee is a place where each of its member is being transformed from a competent coder to become an expert coder. I recommend Jollybee to all students who would like to be competitive at coding.”

    Raymond Kosala, Ph.DHead of Computer Science Program, Binus University International
  • “Great coaches, great friends, and great environments. Three fundamental factors to boost yourself to be the best version of you and Jollybee has it! Competitive programming feels like a fun and thrilling journey with Jollybee.”

    Jessica HandojoAlumni, Jollybee

Frequently Asked Questions

Competitive Programming

What is Competitive Programming?

Competitive programming is a mind sport, where participants are being challenged to solve some common computational and mathematical problems by creating a program using C/C++, Java, or other programming languages. What makes competitive programming interesting is you have to solve many problems as fast as possible, with certain memory limit and time limit for each program.

Where can I practice competitive programming?

All competitive programmers conduct their practice using online judge. Online judge is an online system to test our solutions. After running test on our solution, online judge will give the verdict/judgement. Your program can be considered correct (a.k.a. Accepted), produce a wrong result (a.k.a. Wrong Answer), exceed the time limit (a.k.a. Time Limit Exceeded), or some other verdicts.

There are a lot of online judge where you can practice. At Jollybee, we usually use UVa Online JudgeCodeforces, SPOJ, and Panda Online Judge (our own online judge).

What is ACM ICPC?

ACM ICPC (International Collegiate Programming Contest) is a multitier, team-based, annual programming competitions. It is considered as the oldest and the most prestigious programming competitions in the world. For more information about ICPC, you can visit the official website.

Is competitive programming recognized by tech industry? Why should I spent my time practicing competitive programming?

Yes! In fact, many former competitive programmers are now working in great tech companies such as Google, Facebook, and Apple. Many of our alumni are also working in various tech companies in Indonesia and other countries. That’s because many of these companies need software engineers and computer scientists that are not only capable to create program, but also able to solve current computational problems and write efficient algorithm.

Why the name “Jollybee”?

The codename “Jollybee” was officially used after ACM-ICPC 2005 Manilla Regional. It started as a joke. There were 3 teams that were sent to the ACM-ICPC 2005 Manilla Regional, and 2 teams were named using “bee” as its suffix (“SmartBee”, and “TinkerBee”). One of its members complained the name pattern to the coach that time. He, with an upset tone said, “Why ‘SmartBee’ or ‘TinkerBee’?!?! Might as well we use ‘Jollybee’ instead! Here I do the ‘Jolly Jumper’ problems.”. After that, at Manilla during the Competition, our teams always ate at Jollibee, a well-known fast food chain. Because of that, after they got back to Indonesia, they started to use the name “Jollybee”.
