Looking for a programming job in a big tech firm? Find one by playing games with Code Arcade

From TechRepublic

"Learning is easier when it's fun. That's the reason behind a lot of the gamification of STEM topics – especially programming. CodeFights knows that, which is the entire basis of its compete-to-get-hired system.

CodeFights features a bunch of programming challenges that pit experts in head-to-head battles to see who's the better programmer. As users win fights they advance up leaderboards, where they eventually are considered qualified for different jobs. Companies – like Uber, Dropbox, Two Sigma and Thumbtack – are informed of that qualification and are invited to reach out.

CodeFights just announced a brand new feature: Code Arcade (a CodeFights login is required to access the arcade). Instead of challenging other programmers, Code Arcade moves users through progressively more challenging stages.

The ultimate goal is the same as CodeFights: to do well enough to get noticed by top-tier tech companies.”
