Hardcore Programming renamed to AI Programming
This year we have decided to rename Hardcore Programming to AI Programming to more accurately reflect the content, and possibly make it less intimidating to newcomers. The competition is pretty much unchanged otherwise from earlier years, apart from the fact that it is a new game this year, as usual.
The idea behind AI Programming is to give everyone with a slight interest in programming a cool and interesting project to work on for easter. In AI Programming you write a program that plays a game we create.
We will come back later with details about the game, as well as example code in various programming languages. The game itself will be a strategic game, and will be cross platform.
