The fight is on

There’s no stopping CodeFights. The startup is only less than a year old but it already raised $2.4 million in seed funding from a consortium of investors. What’s interesting about CodeFights is it turns programming skills into a game. Much like joining a tournament, developers can sign up and compete against each other or a timed clock using different programming languages (such as Java versus C++, etc). The idea is to challenge a developer’s programming and math skills and teach him/her something new through the games. The site is also great for coders looking to improve their debugging skills as well their knowledge of algorithms. According to its founder Tigran Sloyan, more than 70,000 users have already shown up and solved 1.5 million challenges. With the coding industry booming, we predict that CodeFights will have a very bright future ahead of them.
