What is CodeRally?

CodeRally is a Java?-based, real-time programming game based on the Eclipse platform. It uses the Eclipse platform and a very simple API that allows users unfamiliar with Java to easily compete while they learn the Java language.

CodeRally was first used at the 2003 ACM International Collegiate Programming Competition, which was sponsored by IBM.

This technology runs on Windows®, Linux®, and Macintosh.

How does it work?

Players develop a rally car and make decisions about when to speed up, turn, or slow down based on the location of other players or checkpoints, their current fuel level, and other factors. Each player can test their car locally against a number of sample rally car. When used in a tournament, CodeRally allows direct, real-time competition between teams. Each player can submit intermediate solutions and test them against the submitted cars from other players. This allows each player to learn from the strategies of other players and modify their car appropriately. After the final submission from each player, the final winner is determined by a tournament consisting of several rounds.
