Seriously technical, seriously irreverent, and seriously fun. Teams at CodeWars compete against each other to solve technology problems that really matter. Starting with an open round, teams of up to four compete against each other for the right to progress to the final tournament. The semi-finals see one team competing against another to solve a problem - watch as they write their code on the big screen, and devise test cases to break their code.
The top teams from the semi-final progress to the grand final, where their product development skills will be put to the test. Solve a real problem, for real people, and pitch it to the gathered audience. The team that wins will be crowned CodeWars Champion for 2012.
We'll be supplying the snacks, and the first round of drinks are on us. So make this your opportunity to meet new friends before the conference, and crush your new-found opposition!
