WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - A nationwide coding competition will be hosted in Delaware’s largest city for a second consecutive year.

The News Journal reported Thursday that organizers of OpenBracket Delaware recently announced plans to host the contest’s championship round in Wilmington. It’s to be held from Oct. 20-22 and will feature individuals competing in a single elimination bracket-style competition for a share of $15,000.

According to OpenBracket’s website , up to 100 coders who compete in the first round from Aug. 4-6 will earn paid travel for the championship in Wilmington. Ten thousand coders are expected to participate in the first round’s online trials, in which the winner receives $5,000 and second-place $1,000.

Tariq Hook with Zip Code Wilmington , a software development boot camp, says the competition draws some of the world’s smartest programmers.
