The Burlington Bytes Code Challenge is a competition hosted by Burlington Bytes as a part of our recruitment process. We periodically issue a hypothetical problem to the public that mimics the sort of problem we run into in our day-to-day work, with a prize for the best solutions. Although you do not need to be seeking work to compete for the prize, we reserve the right to contact any and all entrants with regard to scheduling an interview, and we guarantee that the best three solutions will be offered an interview.

Current Challenge

Shooting Gallery ($150 First Prize)

A developer on our team mysteriously disappeared in the midst of writing a custom slideshow gallery for a client. Can you complete the plugin and keep the client happy?

Deadline: Nov 1st, 2016
Prizes: 1st Place $150, 2nd Place $100, 3rd Place $50

You are welcome to use any and all (properly licensed) resources at your disposal, but simply request that you disclose the sources for code that you did not write yourself, as most programmers do in their normal jobs. Undisclosed plagiarism will be penalized, as will any other tactics not in keeping with the spirit of a skills-based challenge. The winner will be determined by a combined panel of our developers and management, and their determinations are to be considered final.

The competition is open to all US Residents, 18 and over, or 16+ with a duly permitted adult guardian who can accept the prize on their behalf.
