Too many hackathons? Not into pitching to judges & getting stymied onstage with questions that you probably think only the judge understood? Here’s a developer event alternative for you – a code challenge that will challenge your programming “skillz” (as Napoleon Dynamite would have it) without you having to deal with stage fright. This is not for the faint of heart though – DevCon patterned this after the ACM competition (see here the 2012 problems so you know what you’ll have to deal with). Did you read through that and you think the coding was going to be easy? Then code challenges might just be for you! For this iteration, icanhass inc. and their three teams SWEEPED the podium with a 1,2 and 3 finish in the professional division.  Here are the results via JR Yap of DevCon and also some pix:
