#7 - Ruby Programming Tournament
Posted on by angadThe next event in the linuxNUS Hack Workshop Series is the Singpath Ruby Tournament.
As its name suggests, this is a Ruby Programming Tournament, with a focus on simple, logical problems. The cool thing about this? You don’t need to know Ruby in order to participate - all you need is some programming experience and an ability to Google for syntax! (Psst: we do suggest, though, that you go over some basic Ruby bits. Spend a couple of minutes at //tryruby.org/ - it’s really easy to learn!)
We have two interesting people from SMU coming over to host the tournament - Chris Boesch and Sandra Boesch. They last organized an informal Python tournament at Geekcamp, which everyone found rather fun.
You can try some practice tournaments on the Singpath website to increase your chances of winning.
And yes its a tournament - so there will be prizes! Come join us to test your speed and skill!
