t2’11 Challenge status

Ludvig Strigeus from Sweden was the first one to solve the t2’11 Challenge. Congratulations! Awesome work! The competition was fierce and there was only a four minute margin between first and second!

That being said, the rest of you are still in this. Concentrate on elegance by putting your best efforts into the write-up.

Good luck, everyone!

t2′11 Challenge to be released 2011-09-10 10:00 EEST

Since the dawn of our species (well 2005, if you want to be picky about it) t2 has been granting free admission to the elite of their kind, the winners of the t2 Challenges. Don’t be suckered in by all the cheap imitations out there, their snooze-fest la-di-da dog and pony shows, because t2 is back! And we’re pleased to announce the release of the t2’11 Challenge!

Now is your chance to join the past elites by winning free admission to this year’s conference!

This year’s t2’11 Challenge is based on multi-staging (much like good shell code), which will be powered by a scoreboard so that you can see — (almost) in real time — how the other participants are fairing out there in the land of the living.

The rules are simple: t2 will release the t2’11 Challenge and the first one to solve it will win free admission to the t2’11. But don’t stop just because you weren’t the first one to solve it: The Advisory Board will select another winner among the next ten correct answers, paying particular attention to the elegance of the solution rather than the speed. In other words you can win with either speed or style 🙂

The t2’11 Challenge will be released 2011-09-10 10:00 EEST right here at http://t2.fi/
