LinuxProgramming.com: Announcing the Lander1 Programming Contest

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.
