The 6.147 (formerly 6.370) Battlecode programming competition is a unique challenge that combines battle strategy, software engineering and artificial intelligence. Teams of one to four students aim to write the best player program for the Battlecode real-time strategy game.

This is a one-month hardcore coding skills contest for both beginning and advanced coders. This is a programming project that will help you develop your skills, amaze your future employers (our many corporate sponsors), earn six units of MIT credit, consume free food, and maybe earn a share of a $50,000 prize pool.

The 15th edition of Battlecode will take place in January 2015. Remote participation is allowed. Registration opens in December.
