“I love doing yard work!”
… said no one ever
Keep that lawnmower in the shed this weekend and compete in some of these awesome topcoder challenges. There are a lot of great challenges to choose from but here are some interesting ones that I think you may want to take a peek at.
If PHP with Angular is your cup of tea, check out the SunShot series challenge AngularJS Yii Framework PHP Application to help build a system to automate tours and manage members for the National Solar Tour. In addition to the regular prize money, there’s also a bonus for passing submissions. Each participant that scores 80+ will receive a bonus regardless of whether they win.
And finally, we have a challenge for you gophers. We’ve been very pleased with the outcome for our first Omega Microservices challenges in Golang on Cassandra and we are kicking part #2 of this microservices API challenge. This series uses Docker (optionally) to help set up the Cassandra cluster. If you looking to play with Docker and docker-compose (formally fig) these challenges have some good supporting documentation and look to be very interesting. The challenge is still shaping up but should be finalized by late Friday.
Remember: yard work bad… competing in topcoder challenges good.
