"During the whole period of the contest I was following a simple rule, that in order to successfully solve the problem you have to understand its nature. At first, I got familiar with physics and engine of Code Rally through writing simple code and tracing the actions it produced. Looking through the source of API helped a lot. The second step was to research and implement math algorithms on which my AI would build and follow the most efficient path. The last step was to configure and modify code for each track to reach the best performance. I believe that Code Rally project is a brilliant example of how to make coding exciting and fun. Special thanks for the great product support. I am looking forward for new IBM challenges in the future"

What is Code Rally?
Code Rally is a fun, social, and unique car racing game based on concepts from artificial intelligence. It challenges your abilities to think ahead and manipulate controls on your vehicle to win the game against your fellow racers.
IBM has partnered with InfoQ to create "The Code Rally Challenge", a multistage contest where participants with the fastest race times can win great prizes, including one of five Google Nexus tablets!
