Joint Spring Coding Competition
« on: March 01, 2011, 09:16:40 pm »
Hey Omnimaga crew,

UTI, MC and Revolution Software have teamed up for a Spring coding competition.
A poll is up at UTI for the people interested in participating or just those that are wanting cool projects.
Let your voice be heard for a contest for you.
Here's the link:
http://www.unitedti.org/forum/index.php?showtopic=9675&pid=143558&st=0&#entry143558

We'll keep you posted here, revsoft, and UTI as well.

Sure I'll go and post more there, but I'll post it here first.

The contest is going to go from March 7th until June 6th.
Contestants are allowed one entry for the contest, but can enter at any time before June 1st.

There will be rules posted as well as some prize info on Monday.

Nice. Hopefully this sparks some interest. Omni contest starts around mid may, but the first portion will not cover BASIC/ASM, so hopefully this shouldn't cause the participation to go down.

I'll go vote on the UTI poll later.

@ruler501:Although I can't say for sure (as I'm not involved in organizing the contest)there usually is no age restriction on entries to these sorts of contests. The only complications that could potentially arise are in prize distribution, depending on if physical prizes are offered or not.

Actually there is an age restriction...but I think pretty much everybody here is safe. The contest is only open to people 25 and under. We wanted a contest where a student or a person of student age could participate and get a useful prize.

I'm pretty sure BASIC is going to be a programming category :D

Yep, BASIC will almost definitely be a language.

RPGs require a lot of work, though, and might discourage other programmers from joining :P
