THE 2 ED. OF CODE IN THE DARK WILL TAKE PLACE IN SEPTEMBER: A MIX OF UNDERGROUND SPIRIT AND TECH SOUL IN A CHALLENGE TO FIND THE BEST LAYOUT
We are happy to announce that, after the great success of the first edition, Interlogica is organizing, for the second year, the exciting Code In The Dark competition. This is the only Italian contest for blind coding.
We will be waiting for you on Friday, 20th September from 7:00 p.m. at “ARGO 16” (ex Spazio Aereo) in Venice – Marghera.
For those who have never heard of such thing, Code In The Dark is a stimulating competition to test front-end coding abilities (CSS/HTML).
It is an international initiative in which every player tries to implement the design of a web site. The only clue given is just a screenshot, that’s all. HTML, CSS, and a simple text editor are the only tools that participants are allowed to use throughout the whole challenge and no preview of the results are available whilst they are still competing against each other.
The challenge is done together with other front-end specialists through several qualifying rounds of 20 minutes each. The aim is to get a place in the final. Real adrenaline and coding working together!
The winner? Will be chosen by the public.
Everyone is welcome: enthusiasts and curious personalities, developers and non-developers – the public will be witnessing the creation of the code whilst it is created on the screens and they will know the result beforehand whilst the rivals will still be left “in the dark”.
For its second edition, its underground spirit remains the same: Red Bull, beer, pizza and DJ Voltage Selector playing some music.
There will also be an area entirely designed for retro-gaming. For those who want to play with a game full of testosterone, well, there is “Super Ultra Dev Fighter Arena”, a game inspired by Warrior JS and based on Artificial Intelligence. It has been entirely created by some amazing developers from Interlogica.
Interlogica has been involved for many years in sharing an inclusive digital culture. It believes that technologies and innovations need to be available to everyone with no discrimination. Code In The Dark is a format that shows our hacker soul – highly nerdy and creative. It is a challenge that has been done all over the world, from Stockholm to Paris and Berlin and to international cities such as New York. This is a repeating success for Venice, full of code, live music, and stroboscopic lights.
Do you want to be a player?
An open call will be shortly launched so stay tuned!
