Code Hunt - A New Coding Competition – Every Month!

Code Hunt http://www.codehunt.com is a game from Microsoft Research where players code for fun, finding the patterns in clues and writing code to solve a secret algorithm. Code is played by hundreds of thousands of students and enthusiasts worldwide. Now we have teamed up with Imagine Cup to run monthly competitions with big prizes. All students can enter at https://www.imaginecup.com/codehunt. The next one is on the weekend of October 18-19 (starts at 12am UTC). Puzzles range from easy to really challenging, so there is something for everyone. In April, there will be a random draw for $5,000 for all who entered the contest.
