The challenge, hosted by Lighthouse Labs, begins Oct. 1 and offers 21 days of daily coding tasks.
While the company has run these challenges before, this time they upped the ante and motivation by offering prizes.
“We’ve had a great response. We are really happy with how many sign-ups we’ve had so far,” said Erin Westlake, Lighthouse Labs community manager.
The challenge has a grand prize of a trip for two to San Francisco with 3-nights accommodation and a tour of Silicon Valley; finishing prizes of a MacBook Air, Oculus Rift & Touch System, and Samsung Level On Headphones; and daily prizes of Spotify, Netflix, Amazon gift cards, and Lighthouse Labs merch.
Participants can sign up as an individual or a team. While no experience is necessary, Lighthouse Labs recommends doing the free 2-hour prep course they have prepared so that participants can get the most out of their learning.
“Coding is a valuable skill in today’s market, and by participating in this challenge, you can promote professional development and remove the intimidation of coding by completing the challenge with a team of friends or colleagues,” reads the 21-day Coding Challenge website.
