# E Week Coding Competition

##### Starts in

Coding competitions are great practice for interview questions as they test both problem solving skills and coding skills. Test out your skills and join in this E-Week for a chance to win a hammock!

# Prizes

Three hammocks will be awarded in total, one to each contestant in the top three.

(If you already have a hammock or would rather just have a gift card, I'm under the impression that we can get you \$50 gift card if you sign a form with your A-Number)

# Scoring

• Each challenge has a pre-determined score.
• A participant’s score depends on the number of test cases a participant’s code submission successfully passes.
• If a participant submits more than one solution per challenge, then the participant’s score will reflect the highest score achieved. In a game challenge, the participant's score will reflect the last code submission.
• Participants are ranked by score. If two or more participants achieve the same score, then the tie is broken by the total time taken to submit the last solution resulting in a higher score
