Language Upgrades

We're happy to announce a few language updates this week which affect Go, C, C++, and Scala with more in the pipeline.

Go language 
updated to version 1.2 (from 1.0) - more features and it's really interesting for the community;
and C++ compiler updated to version 4.8.1 (from 4.6.3) - now we support C++ 11 standard
Scala language updated to version 2.10.3

In addition, we're still taking votes for our next set of coding challenges below!

A Competitor Ripped our Design and Data

* Update - CrispyCodes has removed their logos and cited their source. 

Earlier this year we released an popular infographic called the "Most Popular Coding Languages of 2013" which was widely circulated and has been viewed over 500,000+ times on our blog and through social media. 

This of course stirred up some controversy because many people saw the infographic without digging into the context which was that this data was based on the over 100,000+ coding challenge we processed at CodeEval in 2012. 

We wanted to give some insight to developers on what languages employers were hiring for, not actual adoption rates like the data TIBOE releases every year. 

So it baffles us why a competitor by the name of CrispyCodes with clients like Xerox, Cheveron, and Pfizer would directly rip our design and data and not make any reference as to where they got their sources from try to sell their product.

They do say that imitation is the best form of flattery, so thank you but maybe you should publish your own data instead. 

Also, thanks to all the members of our developer community of 20,000+ who have reported this to us!

More Coding Challenges on the 101 Freeway

We launched our first Billboard AD on the 101 this summer as a fun experiment which was able to attract the attention of some of the area's best talent. 

Since then, we've decided launch another AD on the 101 this month and possibly many more to keep the competitive nature of coding lively in the area. 

This month's challenge is the Bay Bridges Challenge.

It's a fun challenge that requires you to rebuild all of the Bay Area's bridges more efficiently and sponsored by some awesome local companies including Livefyre, Adroll, Chegg, and Storm8 (who are all hiring lots of talented developers to join their team by the way). 

Give it a shot and let us know how it goes and as always. 

Happy Coding.
