First /dev/null developer game in Poland! Whoo-oop!
What is Escape from /dev/null?
TL;DR: Escape from /dev/null is a combination of a web-based multi-user board game, a programming competition and a science fiction or fantasy story (depending on scenario). Yes it is :)
Food and drinks will be served throughout the day and there’s ample rumors of googly prizes to win in various parts of the game.
Theme of all challenges: Dungeons of /dev/null
You can come as a singleton (and either choose to be assigned to a curated team or go by yourself) or as a team of up to three developers.
All team members must register as a person (but the same team name).
It is _-*very*-_ much encouraged to have team that have at least one good front-end developer and one strong back-end developer. Just saying.
Most challenges in the game will involve accessing a web-based API served via HTTPS but with a self-signed certificate, which will involve a non-standard configuration of your choice of accessing information through HTTPS.
Many challenges will also involve UI programming for various kinds of static and dynamic data representation and interaction.
A web-based solution can be a good idea, but it is also possible to use a classical, monolithic approach, if your skill set lies more in that direction.
You will need to bring your own laptop with your own coding environment
