GRAND PRIZE WINNER 17" Gaming laptop ALIENWARE

Uladzimir Shulau winner Challenge Pond

Race Time: 1:00:19
"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"
