Dan Rogahn winner of the Challenge Circuit track

Race Time: 1:17:51
"Code Rally is an interesting challenge. It's pretty simple to cruise around at a constant speed -- but things quickly get very real when your code needs to balance multiple priorities in near real-time: plotting a course, managing speed around curves, avoiding obstacles... Many things to try. I expect to see some interesting races ahead."

"My boss told me about Code Rally early November, and I thought it might be nice to try out. I installed the whole environment on my machine and when I started coding I realized that the game was AMAZING! The tools were fantastic. I hadn’t used Websphere server, Liberty and Bluemix before; I must say I was pleasantly surprised when I saw them in action. I had so much fun and learned lots of things."
