Since the first event in 2004, t2 has released annual pre-conference challenges for the attendees, people interested in showcasing their skills or gaining free attendance to the event. In this video from 2016 Ludvig Strigeus and Timo Hirvonen walk through the challenge and show how it’s all done.
Even if you are not into solving challenges you can learn how Ludde created a complete taxi meter application with built-in casino games!
Carl “Zeta Two” Svensson from Sweden was the first one to solve the t2’16 Challenge. Well done! Congratulations!
The elegant write-up trophy goes to Alexander Polyakov, Russia. His write-up will be published soon so you’ll have a change to evaluate the submission yourself.
Congratulations to both winners! We would also like to thank each one of you who participated. Last but not least. if you have an interesting idea for t2’17 Challenge, please let us know – authors get a free admission to the conference among other perks 😉
This is just a short note to let you know that the deadline for t2’16 Challenge write-up submissions is 2016-10-08 10:00 EEST, after which the creators of the Challenge will select the winner.
Please remember that the criteria for the selection is the elegance of the answer. The solution must include a detailed description of methods and tools used. If you don’t know the definition of elegance – please check out the winning write-ups from previous years.
