Boulder, Colorado (PRWEB) September 27, 2013
Game on. The International Collegiate Programming Championship, known by college students worldwide as the annual Code Wars, is officially open for registration and has recorded its lead off contestant. Purdue University is the first college to sign up for the artificial intelligence hackathon, which will next take place February 1, 2014.
The contest challenges teams of computer science students to become the next Code Wars hackathon champion. Students race against the clock and one another to analyze an AI problem, write a solution, and test and debug it. Open to all colleges and universities worldwide, previous competitors have included hundreds of universities in the United States, Canada, Russia, and India.
Purdue is one of those competitors, having entered in both 2013 and 2012. In 2012, Nathaniel Cherry's Team BotBebop won third place overall, finishing behind overall winner Team Grande Letra O from University of Wisconsin – Eau Claire and second place team, Team Skyward Nord from the University of Massachusetts. Last year's championship went to Colorado State University's Team Meh.
"We are looking forward to participating again in Code Wars," said Tim Korb, Purdue's Assistant Department Head, Computer Sciences. "It's a great event!"
