Coder Games

The ClueCon Hack-A-Thon is a day filled with games and fun for every attendee. Whether you like to code your way to the prize or are a builder at heart there is something for everyone. Our sponsors provide world class APIs for our attendees to freely use as they compete for wonderful prizes. You can work as a team or go it solo as you utilize the provided materials and even a 3D printer to craft your creation!

RaspberryPi Bake-off Challenge

3D Printer printing an old phone The ClueCon 2016 Maker Challenge and Build-a-phone winners used ingenuity to solve a real world problem and creativity and nostalgia to design a modern throwback. The Maker Challenge winners crafted a device using a provided raspberry pi and arduino sensors to create an awesome LED enabled ordering device! The Build-a-phone designers created a beautifully crafted rotary phone and a modern styled touch screen. Both of these teams worked hard to not only configure the software required for a working demo, but also put together a design to house their device. So what will you create? The possibilities are plentiful!


An Arduino board CodeFights is about improving your coding skills by solving programming challenges. Some modes are single-player and some are multi-player. Each one is a little different, so be sure to try them all! Take the time to dig into more complicated problems, many submitted by the CodeFights community. Rise up the leaderboard by delivering the shortest solution in your language of choice, or passing as many tests as possible. Submit your own challenge for the community to solve, and if you’re lucky it might even be the featured Challenge of the Week!
