Leading e-commerce platform in Southeast Asia and Taiwan, Shopee, has launched the Shopee Code League. It is a 2-week league that features a series of exclusive online training sessions organized by Shopee. It includes two rounds of coding competitions that let participants solve algorithmic puzzles designed by the Shopee Engineering team.
