I have analyzed the data from HackerRank (December 7 2016) to find out the Top 15 countries in the world by cumulative ranking as well as by the number of Institutions in Top 50.
In order to figure out which colleges have the best coders, HackerRank hosted a major University Rankings Competition. Over 5,500 students from 126 schools from around the world participated in the event.
Cumulative Coder Rank of Top 15 Countries
India is the clear leader with cumulative score of 2901.04, more than double of US with cumulative rank of 1113.22. Russia is a distant third with less than 1/2 of US rank. But how does it fare in the total number of Institutions in the Top 50?
|Country||Sum – Rank|
Note: The score / rank of a College is weighted average and hence can be summed to get cumulative scores.
Top 15 Countries by Total Count of Institutions in Top 50
22 Institutions in India rank in the Top 50. US, second placed, is by contrast can boast of only 8 Institutions, almost 1/3 of India.
|Country||Count – Rank|
|Bosnia & Herzegovina||1|
No wonder India is the top destination for outsourcing across the world. It produces very large number of Top Coders according to HackerRank data.
Within India the top 2 Institutions are IIT, Indore followed by IIT, Kanpur.
