A few weeks ago, CodinGame Community Manager, Thibaud Jobert reached out to me. “Is CodinGame gender-neutral?” he wanted to know. He said, “I’d like our community to be welcoming to everyone whatever their gender. To that end, I’d like to know your thoughts … Please don’t hesitate to be honest, I can take it!”
So we chatted… and this week you can play in one of the first competitions to result from that discussion. “Code Royale” was developed and tested by a team of women, and benefits Girls Who Code.
The game is a tower defense type, where the players write code for the AI that controls the Queen who builds mines, barracks for knights, archers, giants and towers for defense.
You can work in whatever language you’re comfortable with. (I’m using java). I’m having a lot of fun with it. You can see a replay of one of my battles below.
Let me know if you get involved. We can share strategies!
