If you’re reading this, then you probably understand video games. What you like, what you don’t. What you’d build if you had the chance, the tools and the motivation. Here is your opportunity!
Your Challenge - The Micro Focus COBOL Code Contest is a platform to create, develop and build your own video game and win a great prize. It’s open to anyone from student developers, to hobbyist programmers everywhere. You just need the creativity and the raw materials. Which brings us to...
Your Tools - To enter the competition you’ll need to make sure you’ve got Visual COBOL Personal Edition, the latest version of the programming language behind 90% of the Fortune 500 companies. As long as your game contains at least 50% COBOL, you’re in.
The Motivation - $1,000 is a big chunk of change to win, but this contest could even help you get career security. The winning game could appear as a new demo in our next release of Visual COBOL – and some of the biggest names in tech cut their teeth developing games. Business organizations need skilled programmers. ‘Zapping aliens’ can take you a long way.
