A Gaming Bots Constest at a RoR Meetup
On September 14, Altoros organized a Ruby on Rails meetup that took place in Minsk, Belarus (Eastern Europe). Attended by 80+ Ruby experts from the local dev community, the event featured several sessions on RoR, cloud, and other relevant topics.
During the meetup, the participants had an opportunity to test their programming skills in a contest of Codenjoy, an open source training gamification framework for developers. For the event, our team created a Ruby connector to this service. Developers that took part in the contest could write bots that were playing Tetris, a popular PC game from the ’80s.
Watch the video to see how the bots competed against each other:
Ruby fluff talks, tea/coffee, and lots of informal networking—it was a nice, warm event. Check out the photos below.
