1. 2017 Ace of Coders National Infocomm Competition

  Ace of Coders is a competition for talented coders like no other you’ve seen. Top coders compete in front of a live audience and the ultimate trophy goes to the most talented who can defeat their opponents in a fantasy gaming environment. The catch – you don’t play with your insane gaming skills, but with codes! You will write code that controls the AI of your troops, everything from crafty manoeuvres, calculated attacks and opportunistic spell casting. Experience the excitement as your supporters cheer for you, live in an e-sports style.

Everybody can be a part of this! All you need to do is login to http://CodeCombat.com/ and complete your first level. Absolutely no prior coding experience is required. What’s more, it’s free! CodeCombat has been played by over 4 million students around the world as part of the annual hour of code promoted by Code.org.
