HackOff is Back!

[D] [Digg] [SU] [R] [SU] [SU]

Wellington Perl Mongers and Catalyst IT are joining forces to host a 'HackOff' event at LCA2010. The event is a team-based programming competition - with a focus on fun. From the announcement:

"Remember when coding was fun? Before you got bogged down with UML diagrams, architecture planning meetings, spec documents, unit tests and user documentation? For one evening, we'll take you back to how coding was meant to be - see a problem, solve it, move on. The first team to solve all the problems will be declared the winners and will receive the adulation of their peers (who knows, there may even be a prize)"

For more details of how it works and sample problems from the HackOff2008 event, visit the Wellington Perl Mongers web site:
