What is PixBlocks app?

Pix Programming Challenge, with the exception of the final event, is carried out remotely via computer application – PixBlocks. The application gives contestants an opportunity to participate no matter where they are – at school or at home.

But PixBlocks is not meant only for Pix Programming Challenge – the application is intended to provide complete programming courses – from basic to advanced level. We strongly recommend to use it as a study aid during preparations for the competition.
