CODE100 unknown pleasures

The next edition of CODE100 is in Manchester in the UK and I am super excited to come back to the isle! It will be my first time in Manchester and as a huge Joy Division/New Order fan, I really look forward to it.

CODE100 is not your typical coding competition; it’s a coding game show where talented developers go head-to-head live on stage. It’s high energy and people in the audience and on stage alike can participate.

  • Attendees find a fun night watching coders compete in real-time, participate in audience challenges, win prizes, and network with the local tech community.
  • Contestants can showcase their coding skills, compete against other talented coders, and potentially win a seat at the finals at the WeAreDevelopers World Congress 2024.
  • Teams and organisations can nominate a challenger, engage with like-minded individuals, and showcase their group’s talent to a wide audience.

CODE100 is language agnostic, all you need as a challenger is analytic thinking skills, a Github login, a phone and nerves.

Me, I am the person coming up with all the challenges, pick the challengers and making sure all works smoothly. So, see you on the 22nd?

A themed CODE100 Challenge

As a themed challenge, here is our take on the classic Unknown Pleasures by Joy Division cover . In this challenge we ask you to return the amount of black or transparent pixels in the image and return it as an integer. You get the pixel data as a JSON object.

I will be in London for Devoxx earlier in May, back in Islington where I lived for 16 years, so hopefully I will see some of you there.
