Coding Challenges – 2018

This week is the perfect opportunity to start coding, improve your coding skills, or show off your coding skills. We have lots of prizes for coders of all levels.

You can code on your own. You can code with a friend. You can join one of the coding events and code with us.

Sign up here to be eligible for prizes!

<CHALLENGES>

NEW CODERS:

We have two different challenges for you. Both use drag and drop interfaces so that you will not get bogged down with syntax issues. It is your chance to be creative through coding AND you may even win a prize.


New coder challenge 1:

For this challenge, you’ll use the Scratch coding environment to code your own fashion game.

When you’re ready to submit, use the file menu to download your code. Then email your file from your GU account to: Beginni.9r7u04r5hz6tftll@u.box.com


New coder challenge 2:

 For this challenge, you’ll use the Scratch coding environment to code an interactive maze game. Look at this example, then create your own game!

When you’re ready to submit, use the file menu to download your code. Then email your file from your GU account to: Beginni.6ik5822w0vjm7ade@u.box .com


ALL OTHER CODERS:

We’ve curated a custom coding challenge on Hacker Rank.

Test your skills against other coders! See how you rank. Solve problems to win points and prizes.

Need help or inspiration?  Join us on Tuesday night for pizza and programming (and board games!).

 

The challenge ends on Thursday at 10 p.m. We’ll notify winners on Friday morning and prizes will be awarded at our Friday happy hour at Epicurean.

 

Good luck! Happy coding!
