Limerick`s first marathon challenge for Java programmers will take place on Wednesday February 5, at 9am at ACI Limerick’s offices in the National Technological Park in Plassey.

ACI Worldwide Payment Systems Limerick is expanding and to celebrate is hosting this inaugural competition. Any student with a software programming background – and in particular Java – can apply. Individuals or teams of up to four are invited to enter for the top prize; €1,000 worth of One4All vouchers.

The challenge will run for 12 hours and participants will be tested on their programming skills, including gaming and hacking abilities. The event will be interspersed with other tasks including physical and mental team building exercises.

Throughout the day entrants will get to meet with ACI`s top Java programmers and gain valuable insight into how their working day is structured. Food and refreshments will also be provided.

ACI Worldwide is a major supplier of software and services to the transnational payment industry. In April 2013 it announced 60 new jobs and the company continues to grow. Its office space has doubled in size and plans are to recruit more developers and programmers in 2014. ACI Limerick view graduates from both UL and LIT in high esteem and are looking forward to further their relations with the colleges and students according to ACI’s HR manager, Shane Blake.
