The ‘Big Thank You’ initiative from Pyronix pledge extra cash prizes in a programmer play-off
Pyronix is set to increase the prize fund of its ongoing competition to discover the ‘quickest programmer in the land’, with cash rewards for all those securing a top five place on the leaderboard.
Following the announcement of the top five at Alarm Supplies Scotland, Cumbria on 3rd May, (the penultimate event of the tour), a programming play-off at the Enterprise Security event, Bedfordshire on 9th May, will be held between those who scored the 2nd- 5th best overall times. Their performance on the day will then decide who claims what position, and ultimately the level of cash prize they will be awarded.
Julie Kenny, Chair and Chief Executive of Pyronix, said: “We are thrilled with the sheer number of customers participating in the competition over the last seven months, and look forward to seeing if anyone can beat Iain’s time.
“By rewarding all those in the top five, with a cash prize of £750 for second place, £500 for third place, £300 for fourth place and £200 for fifth place, rather than simply a cash prize for first place, furthers the founding principle of our ‘Big Thank You’ initiative.”
The top five will be announced following the final event hosted at Alarm Supplies Cumbria on 3rd May. The overall winner will not only walk away with the £1000 cash prize, but will be our guest of honour at the PSI Premier awards where they will be officially recognised as the quickest programmer in the UK and presented with their cheque.
