Does anyone know where to find programming competitions at on the web?


if ($problem==mark_solved){

solution ($problem);}

 

if ($skill_level==learning && $my_knowledge==the_required_level_of_knowledge){

     echo "I will try to help, because you're still $skill_level , and my skill level is at $my_knowledge";

} else {

     echo "I can't help you, go away.";

}

Interesting, but they're .net, not php competitions.


if ($problem==mark_solved){

solution ($problem);}

 

if ($skill_level==learning && $my_knowledge==the_required_level_of_knowledge){

     echo "I will try to help, because you're still $skill_level , and my skill level is at $my_knowledge";

} else {

     echo "I can't help you, go away.";

}

We used to have competitions here but there wasn't much interest since our prizes more or less sucked. We have been talking about bringing them back with more substantial prizes though. Can't really share details beyond that at this time.

Did I help you? Feeling generous? Donate to me! || Donate to phpfreaks!
Please, take the time and do some research and find out how much it would have cost you to get your help from a decent paid-for source. A "roll-of-the-dice" freelancer will charge you $5-$15/hr. A decent entry level freelancer will charge you around $15-30/hr. A professional will charge you anywhere from $50-$100/hr. An agency will charge anywhere from $100-$250/hr. Think about all this when soliciting for help here. Think about how much money you are making from the work you are asking for help on. No, we do not expect you to pay for the help given here, but donating a few bucks is a fraction of the cost of what you would have paid, shows your appreciation, helps motivate people to keep offering help without the pricetag, and helps make this a higher quality free-help community :)

A lot of coding competitions you are actually doing work for clients...not guaranteed a pay, sometimes they do more positions for winners, not always.
