CodeCup 2011 - An online programming competition

Welcome to CodeCup!

We offer you a challenging programming contest. Anybody can participate; there are no age restrictions or other special requirements. The CodeCup never charges entry fees.

In 2011 the game for the contest is Dvonn. We have placed a description of the rules online. You can always watch a sample game being played.


After you login in to the CodeCup system you can submit your program. You can find the submission section under "My submissions". Your submission will be tested automatically against our sample players to ensure that it follows the rules. After passing this check your program is ready to compete! Note that your program must be capable of playing both as black and white.

We will hold test competitions every three weeks starting at the end of September. In these competitions you will see how your program performs against other players. You can follow the complete games and use this information to improve your strategy.

The official Dvonn competition has been played on January 22nd 2011.You can go directly to the final ranking of the programs.

The software to play at home is called Caia. It works in the same way as our contest software. By hosting your own local competition you can test and improve your program in a fast and easy way.

The CodeCup system has been offline for a long time. Unfortunately our CodeCup system was hacked. Most of the content is back online now and is working; including the forum. We are sorry for the inconvenience it took for the past months. We have "a lot of time" available now. That means we are also working on the new game for 2012. We hope to publish the rules of the new game by the end of July. We keep you informed!
