Coding For Fun: MIT Battlecode Challenge 2017

Joshua Robinson Community, Programming, Technology Snapshot Leave a Comment

I recently participated in the month-long MIT Battlecode competition where I programmed a team of virtual robots that competed against another team in a real-time strategy game. In this blog, I discuss some of the lessons learned during the programming competition. I was surprised how much of it could be used as a lesson in the real-world of programming!

We’re in this industry because we love programming and writing code. It is in this spirit that I suggest to all readers to consider challenging yourself and doing something similar to “code for fun” and improve your skills!
