Ready, set, go! MassDiGI and HackerRank announce CodeSprint
By Tim Loew, executive director, MassDiGI
Are you the best game coder in the world? Prove it by competing in our MassDiGI CodeSprint challenge. The challenge, conducted in partnership with HackerRank, gives competing students the chance to test their programming mettle with the winners taking home some great prizes like $250, a Nvidia Shield Portable or a 3-day 2015 PAX East badge. Click here to enter. The online competition starts today and closes on March 3 – with the final bot competition presented at the Pre-PAX East Made in MA Party on March 5.
HackerRank is a site for hackers from all over to solve programming problems in different computer science domains like algorithms, machine learning and artificial intelligence, and to excel in different programming paradigms like functional programming. It is the planet’s fastest growing developer platform and it is on a mission to make the world fast by making hackers the best at what they do.
Companies like Riot and Pocket Gems use HackerRank as part of their recruiting process – so competing students just might find they get a call after this CodeSprint is over! Good luck to all.
