Are You Ready to take the Intel® Threading Challenge?

You're the developer who loves solving problems and crafting code. Here's your chance to show off your threading skills. Our experts have come up with twelve problem sets on a variety of topics from a Sudoku puzzle to a dorm room assignment problem. Meet the challenge by submitting the best multi-threaded code solution and win prizes.

Each month a new problem set will be open for competition and you can be the winner of a $100 USD Gift Card. Solve as many problem sets during the entire series to maximize your points and increase your chance to win the awesome grand prize – an Apple MacBook Pro laptop.

What You Need to Do

Just review each month's problem set and submit your code solution at the contest website. On the 21st of each month, our panel of judges will review your final entry and assign points based on the following criteria:

  • Code Elegance – the organization of functions, methods, names of variables, documentation, or surprising use of an algorithm within the code.
  • Execution Timing – the "wall clock" time of execution of the application.

You also receive bonus points if you use the Intel® Threading Building Blocks and for participating in our contest discussion forums.

What You Can Win

The individual with the most points for the problem set will win a $100 USD AMEX or Visa gift card. The individual with the most points at the end of the series gets to take home the latest and greatest Apple* MacBook Pro laptop with the 15" screen.

Act fast! The 20th of each month is the deadline for submitting your entries to each problem set. So sharpen your pencils and show your peers how good of a developer you are. Click here to join.
