XP Manchester

#xpman xl5 03/10/15 – We Have Prizes!

leave a comment »

Our 5th full day event is fast approaching. Hosted at the awesome AutoTrader offices in central Manchester we’re looking forward to another hectic bot/AI challenge on the 3rd of October.

Unlike previous years we’re lucky to have some prizes for the winning team (one per person) that have been kindly donated by Zuhlke Engineering who have recently opened a new office in Manchester.

This year the challenge is a twist on the classic two-player game Battleships. The full details of the game won’t be released until the day to keep things fair. The game is all played over HTTP, so every programming is welcome (and encouraged!)

The day opens at 9:30 (starting at 10:00) and runs until 17:00. To do well you’ll need to fully embrace the XP Practice of “Release early, release often”. It’s a hectic day, but lots of fun. Think of it as a nice warm up for HackManchester. :)

There are still a handful of tickets left if you fancy it, and they’re free. But you must get a ticket if you’re coming. AutoTrader need a list of names of attendees, and we need to know how much food and drink to get
