Put your coding skills to the test. In cooperation with Microsoft Research, Imagine Cup brings you the ultimate challenge: write effective and elegant code, in real-time, in competition with thousands of other student programmers.
In the Code Hunt Challenge, you'll be shown a snippet of code, and you'll have to rewrite it to produce the desired output in as few lines of code as possible. The puzzles start easy but quickly escalate in difficulty. Can you solve them all?
The winner of each month's Challenge is the student who produces the best possible answers in the shortest time. The Challenge lasts just 48 hours, and the first student to get the highest score will receive a $1000 prize! Additionally, the top scoring participants will receive digital certificates recognizing their achievement as Code Hunt Finalists.
And every student who participates will be entered into our Grand Prize drawing, where one student will be chosen at random to win a $5000 prize!
The sixth Code Hunt Challenge begins on April 18th at 12:01 AM (GMT), and ends on April 19th at 11:59 PM (GMT). Even when there's no Challenge happening, though, you can still visit www.codehunt.com and practice your skills to get ready for the big event.
To get started, please register now and sign into your Imagine Cup Dashboard. Then find the Code Hunt Challenge and sign up!
