The Wedel University of Applied Sciences recently held their biannual programming competition, which is open to all students of the university. Goodgame Studios sponsored the event and donated prizes totaling €1000.
The task for the competition concerned artificial intelligence. Two computers had to be programmed to play the number game 2048 against each other. The program had to run on Linux. Students worked together in small groups, and the results were presented at the end to be judged. Before the ceremony, while the judges were weighing up the teams’ efforts, our Chief Technical Officer Stefan gave a short presentation about Goodgame Studios. We are always looking for well-qualified specialist staff to join our team of 200 programmers. The competition was a good opportunity to introduce ourselves as a company and to discover coding talent.
When the judging was over, Stefan awarded cash prizes to the three teams with the best solutions. No one left empty-handed, however – there were textbooks for everyone, and a barbecue to round off the successful event.
