StateFarm Online Java Coding Competition: October 17

Start Farm is once again hosting a Java Coding Competition!

This contest is open to all full-time Computer Science students (Grad or Undergrad), including On-line students!  You can compete as an individual or in a team of two. You must pre-register in order to participate. Registration can be found at:

This competition has, in the past, involved writing a short, multi-class Java application. Submissions were be graded with regard to the completeness of the solution, code readability (this includes the use of comments and refactoring of duplicate code); and adherence to object oriented principles.

This year responses will be graded on a standard Windows 7 machine using the latest version of Spring Tool Suite with the Java 7 JDK. All submissions will be unarchived from a “.zip” file using the 7-zip application.

Ludum Dare 31

LDUIS Computer Science faculty, UIS Computer Science students and Lincoln Land Community College students teamed up over the weekend to compete in the International Game Development Contest called Ludum Dare 31. Over the last 72 hours this group of amateur game developers was able to draft, design, implement, and publish an entire game from scratch. The theme of this Ludum Dare was “Entire Game on One Screen” so this team decided to develop a ‘traditional’ dodger game. The game was developed using the Unity Game Engine, along with multiple other software suites.

Software Engineers: Joshua Smith (UIS Faculty), Brian-Thomas Rogers (UIS Faculty), Brian Jones (UIS Graduate Student), David Miller (UIS Alumni)

Sound Engineer: Michael Ripka (UIS Graduate Student)

Pixel Bender: Aimee Daniels (LLCC Student)

The game can be played here.
