If there’s something strange in your IDE, who you gonna call?

Codebusters is the next multiplayer AI programming contest. It will last for 8 days from Saturday, June 25th (12PM EST) to Sunday, July 3rd (2PM EST).

For those who still hesitate to participate, here are some reasons that should convince you to join:

#1 It’s Super Fun

The contest lasts for 8 days, but having a first bot working takes something like 10 minutes, so you can have fun very quickly. Try it! Honestly, you might be surprised.

Don’t tell me that you don’t think a ghost hunt is exciting, I won’t believe you.

#2 It’s Challenging

This is a way to compete with real players from all over the world. You can compare your skills with other CodinGamers depending on your programming language, your school or your company.

Your mission if you accept it: save the world wild web.

#3 It’s Brain Practice

Not only does it help you sharpen your skills to be more efficient in your daily work, but it’s also a great exercise for hiring tests. Practice makes perfect!

It’s easier to convince your partner that you’re practicing your brain skills doing a coding contest than playing video games.

#4 You Can Learn Stuff

It’s a great opportunity to learn from your peers. CodinGame chat is getting a second rework. It will facilitate discussions between CodinGamers all along the contest.

Programming stuff most probably, but who knows?

#5 You Can Get a Job

You can choose to code for glory and fun, or you can choose the companies which could contact you after the contest depending on your results. The complete list of companies is on the registration page!

You know what? That’s how I got in CodinGame.

#6 You Can Become a Legend

We’ve introduced a league system. You start in Bronze league and you can go up until Legend League but it gets more difficult along the way!

There won’t be many opportunities in your life to become legendary, think about it.

#7 You Can Win a CodinGame T-Shirt

The list of prizes is available on the registration page!

Who cares about a 3D-printer when you can proudly wear a CodinGame T-Shirt at work?

#8 It Inspires Respect

Just look at the eyes of your teammates when they ask you what you did on Saturday evening, and you answer “I coded”.

Pro tip: works also with Sunday evening.

#9 You Can Make History

When CodeBusters will become the greatest contest ever known, you’ll be able to say “I was there”.

True story.

#10 It’s Free

The only thing to do is to register though.

When was the last time you refused to participate in a free event where you could win prizes?
