Join the Relay Game


The Relay Game is a collaborative programming experiment, designed to see how groups of people with limited time can asynchronously work together to factor and solve problems.

The goal is to solve a programming problem, like one you might encounter in an interview. The bad news is you only have ten minutes to understand the problem, brainstorm a strategy, and code up your solution. The good news is you have a bunch of other people who also have ten minutes to contribute to solving the problem.

You’ll have access to the code and the notes written by the previous player. In your ten minute window you can do whatever you like:

At the end of the ten minute block you’ll submit your notes and code, and when the next player’s turn begins they’ll take what you’ve created and improve on.
