Announcing Operation: Code Clash!!!



Proudly Presents...


Operation: Code Clash (OCC) is a FREE team-based programing competition for high school students (grades 9-12). It takes place entirely on-line. The goal of Operation: Code Clash is to provide high school students with a fun yet challenging competition that is often only available at the university/college level.

Operation: Code Clash is different from most other competitions in that teams complete against one another on a virtual field of play. Teams are presented with a single mission – a game – and must create a program to play the game. In some ways, it is a virtual version of popular robotics competition formats such as FIRST Robotics Competition and is inspired by college-level competitions such as MIT’s Battlecode.

Team Sign-up is open NOW and more information is available on the website: operationcodeclash.org

Kick-off is September 27, 2014 at noon EDT!!!

Feel free to ask questions here OR on the Operation: Code Clash forum available via the website.

While not limited to FIRST Robotics Teams, we’re sure there will be some “friendly” competition between the incredible programming talents on FRC teams throughout the US and Canada!!!

Re: Announcing Operation: Code Clash!!!

Looks interesting. Can the team name be changed after team registration?

Re: Announcing Operation: Code Clash!!!

This looks like a fantastic idea. What programming languages will be required to create this game?

The team name can be changed on the team management page that can be accessed by either the team mentor or any students that have been marked as admins.

Re: Announcing Operation: Code Clash!!!

Can you add people later on? Like after the team has been created or the challenge released?

You can add people to your team at any time via the team management page, but you can only add up to 4 people. So if more than 4 want to be on your team, I suggest you make multiple teams.

Re: Announcing Operation: Code Clash!!!

I'm so excited to take part in this! When after kickoff might a list of the teams involved be released?

I'd also love to see if there will be any secondary awards (best commenting, cutest variable names, etc.). {I'd probably win most unnecessary uses of curly braces}.
