It's nothing new when it comes to competitive programming, which whiteboard interviews are just watered-down versions of. Russian/EE/Chinese universities are doing that for ages:
You can try competitive programming course by ITMO on edx (https://www.edx.org/course/how-win-coding-competitions-secre...). It's going to start on 17th October.
A new edX course  was announced few days ago, which is created by SPb ITMO (which finished 7th this year).
⬐ divkakwaniThe course is an introductory course, suitable only for beginners. Do you know any good resource for intermediate-level programmers?⬐ codepie⬐ Cyph0nStanford's course http://web.stanford.edu/class/cs97si/ and another one: https://algo.is/t-414-aflv-competitive-programming-course-20...The course looks really interesting to be frank. I've recommended it to my college's competitive programming team actually!
ITMO did not get 1st place this year because the team changed, and I believe tourist graduated. Last year  for example they solved all 13 problems, while the 2nd team solved 11; there simply was no competition.
7th is still an excellent result. Let's see what they do next year!⬐ yourratzonTourist in ineligible because he has already participated twice, which is the limit.
