Putting The "challenge" In Pug Challenge!


Attention all Progress 4gl programmers! We're throwing down the gauntlet!

We have a server that plays games – specifically Othello (aka Reversi) - and it's bored and lonely.

You write some ABL code that plays Othello by talking to the server using a specific API we provide. During the PUG Challenge, players' play games against each other in a tournament that consists of a knockout competition. Preliminary rounds will take place during the PUG Challenge and the final match will take place during a session on Wednesday morning.

At the very least you win bragging rights, but there may be prizes too! :)
