Code in the Dark Spokane

Fox Theatre October 5th 2018 @ 6PM

Code in the Dark is a competition and massive party derived from a popular European event. Top programmers compete to build a website under pressure given only a screenshot. Unifest provides the electronic soundtrack, you provide the tension, and we provide drinks and vibe.

This is the only party/competition in the PNW, it’s open to the public, and FREE.

Friendly Competition

A Friendly Competition

Contestants compete 10 at a time, cheered on by the crowd, on machines and a "special" editor. It's tough, fun, and the crowd adds a interesting dimension.

Join the party

Club Vibe

Yeah! This is more than a programming competition. It's a party with DJs from Unifest, lights, effects, etc. You could bring a "friend" and they'd have a good time.

Food, drinks and Fun!

Everyone is Welcome

You don't have to be compete to have fun at Code in the Dark. Audience members get to text in their votes for who should move forward in each round! It's kind of like American Idol, but cooler.

How it Works

Each contestant receives a screenshot. They build the page (or whatever) using HTML/CSS. Any additional assets they might need are provided. No iframes, frameworks, snippets or external assets. Previews of the results are UNDEFINED until the time is up.

Once the 15 minute timer runs out each contestant presents their result to the audience, who vote via SMS on their favorite.

We'll provide practice tips once you register.
