A Friendly Competition

The contestants of each heat compete, 8 at a time, with equipment provided and set up for you.

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.
