What is it?
Windward’s Student Code Wars are unlike any other code war or hackathon – in this AI strategy game, you go head to head against the best students all over the world. Teams from top universities have just 8 hours to analyze a problem, write the best AI using Python, Java, Microsoft C++, OR C#, create a solution, test it against the entries of the other programming experts, and earn the highest score to win amazing prizes. Strategy and skill are rewarded, but the winning code isn’t always the cleanest. All’s fair in love and war.
