A $31 Trillion, 390 Billion Statement Programming War Between 545 Wizards

What happens when you challenge hundreds of elite programmers to put on their robes and wizard hats, enchant their minions to solve a constantly shifting multi-agent traveling salesman problem, use the loot to build mighty armies, and vie for eternal glory and tournament prizes?

You get a lot of clever coding, dirty tricks, attempted exploits, brilliant strategies, and an epic programming war that left millions of human and ogre widowers weeping for their fallen wives. And you get two unspeakably powerful Archmage champions.

Here are the results from our Greed multiplayer programming tournament. By the way, many of our talented players are open to job opportunities, so if you're hiring (or know someone who is), check out our employers page.

Using a QR code to board a flight

On DROdio

Today I checked in to a Delta flight using my mobile phone and was surprised to see a QR code pop up (this one specifically was an Aztec-type QR code).

Typically I never have a printer around when I need one, to print a boarding pass, which has made checking in with a mobile device pretty useless.

But with this QR code, I was able to go through security, and also check in, just by scanning my phone.  No printer required.  The video below shows the experience.

Want to try it yourself?  If you have an iPhone, just download this app called NeoReader, and then scan the code at right on this screen.  It'll take you to the webpage of this blog.  I built the QR code using this QR code generator.

Thanks to Patrick Donnelly for a quick QR code education!
