The Rock Paper Azure Challenge gets underway today! It’s a chance to prove your coding skills as bots you develop battle it out in a cloud-based game of “Rock, Paper, Scissors” (with added twists – dynamite and water balloons).
Though topping the leaderboard will earn you bragging rights, there are prizes for the weekly tournaments (run each Friday) as well.
How do you get started?
- Get the (free) tools, game code, and trial Windows Azure account
- Build your bot – the strategy is up to you (some helpful tips)
- Test and deploy your bot
- Enter your bot in the Challenge
There are weekly webcasts to help – “Getting Started” on Tuesdays, and “Tips and Tricks” on Fridays.
Details are on the Rock Paper Azure Challenge site.
