Last year, volunteer developers launched Codewarz, an online contest featuring 24 coding challenges. This year, the contest is rebranded as RunCode, and it has corporate sponsors and a lot more challenges — 180, to be exact. The competition runs November 10-12, and it is open to developers of all levels of expertise. Winners will get prizes like an Intel NUC kit, Raspberry Pi and Arduino kits, and a one-year VIP subscription to the Hack The Box penetration testing lab — and, of course, bragging rights.
“We’ve had a gradual shift from pure coding challenges to a mix of coding challenges and more [capture the flag] CTF style,” said one of the RunCode team members. “We’re fans of CTFs ourselves and there was a lot of interest in it.”
