If you ever wondered about which country produces the best programmers, wonder no more.

A new report from California-based HackerRank, a service that administers tests to developers around the world, says it's China.

Second place goes to Russia, and Poland takes bronze. Traditional programming powerhouses like the US and India came in at 28th and 31st, respectively.

HackerRank offers its community of programmers, apparently 1.5 million strong, with challenges to hone their skills. It examined data from these challenges from the last few years to come up with the rankings, scoring developers from different countries and finding national averages.


"According to our data, China and Russia score as the most talented developers. Chinese programmers outscore all other countries in mathematics, functional programming, and data structures challenges, while Russians dominate in algorithms, the most popular and most competitive arena," according to HackerRank.

The US's position at No. 28, behind countries like Japan, Greece and Chile, might seem odd, especially for the country that basically birthed the internet and created so many of the coding tools used today. This could potentially correlate to a lower emphasis on maths and science in American schools, as this Pew Research report details.

This is also not the first time that America has been humbled by the likes of China and Russia in the programming arena. At the collegiate level during the recent ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest, schools from China and Russia beat out the likes of Harvard and MIT.

We restricted the data to the 50 countries with the most developers on HackerRank. Here’s what we found:

China is taking over the world in almost every aspect of life. I'm even surprised to see Nigeria in top 3 in Africa. Kudos to our boys and girls at Computer Village & Aba.

Meanwhile, If you want to change the world, do it when you are a bachelor. After marriage, you can't even change a TV channel.

Great credit,
Nigeria without doubt is blessed with great intellectuals and wealth of talents, As Achebe said, leadership is the major challenge...

                                            IT'S A WHEAT OF GRAINS

                           WHERE PROMISES HAVE REMAINED UNFULFILED

                                      STILL WE MUST IGNITE OUR HOPES
                                        AND NOT FOCUS ON THE LACUNA

No ooo we are not there yet cos by the time this economy hardship hold everyone we would surely think outside the box and let see if we will not be in the top 10 in the world.

I know we are talented and smart people our oyel is what is keeping us lazy but now that oyel is not that marketable hardship will make us discover our individual talents.

N B: please Nigerian just leave Kenyan and Ghanian alone we can't be like them and they can never be like us,see combine the populations and economies of the two nations they can't take one third of ours, they are just envy us. Peace

Lol. For your mind. Computer village and Aba Ibo boys mainly deal in SALES of computer HardWare. Without sentiments, the SWersterners play the dominant role in Software where programming falls under.
