The challenges usually last for 3 hours during which participants have to solve 2 programming puzzles, providing the smartest possible code to get to the top of rankings. To code their solutions, participants may use CodinGame’s complete online IDE which supports 16 programming languages, alongside with useful features such as auto-completion or syntax highlight.
Participation is free and anonymous and everyone’s source code is open-sourced and displayed on the website shortly after the event, so that everyone can learn from the others. Programmers can already train on the website with previous editions' exercises.
Next event will be on March 22nd. Each CodinGame challenge has a dedicated theme so that of March 22nd will be “Kirk’s Quest”, in reference to Star Trek’s Captain Kirk whose birthdate is supposed to be on that day.
