It looks like there’s a cool programming contest scheduled for New Year’s Eve:
a $1,000 first prize, a $500 second prize, and 5 x $100 third prizes.
I’m not sure which timezone this is actually happening in, as it’s
based in India,
but it looks pretty cool nonetheless.
Sadly, I lost the ability to be productive coding between 12:30 and
6:30am about three years ago, otherwise I’d give it a shot.
It did get me thinking about organizing a ruby coding contest for the
community, though. Limit to Ruby only, similar organization/scoring
to this one (6 problems worth points, bonus points for the
smallest/fastest/least memory on each problem) and do cash prizes. I
don’t have $1500 to put up for prizes, but if a $5 admission was
organized, 30 people could make a $75/$50/$25 prize split.
Would anyone be interested in participating in such a contest?
