Competition set for tomorrow at 10 am local time
We’re just hours away from the start of the third annual Windward Code Wars.
Tomorrow more than 300 students are going to sit down and code. A few will give up, some will find it frustrating, and a number will find it just okay.
But the vast majority will love it. It will be a tough and challenging day and at the end they will feel a great sense of accomplishment.
Many will say it was one of their best days at school.
A Global Contest
This year registrants come from three different continents: North America, Europe and Africa. They include:
- Faculty of Engineering, Alexandria University. We’re thrilled to announce our first participant from Egypt.
- St.Petersburg Polytechnical University This is the second year in a row we welcome a team from St. Petersburg, Russia.
- Universidad de las Ciencias Informaticas The Havana-based university is the first school from Cuba to join Code Wars.
Local Appeal, Too
Last year the contest was won by a team in our own backyard from Colorado State University. Colorado will be well represented again in 2014, with Colorado School of Mines and University of Colorado-Boulder also registered.
Plus, there are plenty of schools from throughout North America ready to take the challenge.
