Think you're the hottest programmer around and just oozing with The Right Stuff? If so, here's your chance to prove it and win some serious prizes in the process.

This morning, Monday, February 19, 2001, LinuxProgramming.com is announcing Lander1, a C programming contest that puts your code at the controls of a virtual lunar lander style vehicle, The Flying TuxMan. Your goal is to take off, hover at a specified altitude, and then land safely, using as little fuel and landing as softly as you can.

Thanks to numerous vendors we have five prize packages including hardware, software, books, and clothing, with the grand prize having a retail value of more than $4,000.

The deadline for submissions is April 2, 2001.
