Shader Showdown - Live Coding Competition

They started it in 2013 at WeCan, then Revision gave the livecoders the big stage they deserve, and now it's 2018 and they are back once again and hungrier than ever before.

On Friday night and Saturday afternoon - the ultimate fight of knowledge, persistence and crowd-pleasing skills will again take place: The Shader Showdown Live Coding Competition.

What does it all mean? At Revision 2018, 8 coders will compete one-on-one in a live-shader-coding single elimination tournament over two days.

On Friday - The Elimination Round: Four battles where the respective winners move to the Saturday Finals.
On Saturday - The Finals: Two battles in the Semifinals and one breathtaking Final round to determine the ultimate live-coder!

The crowd can watch both coders in split-screen mode. An audio feed will be provided by a DJ - who will play to the visuals the coders produce on the screen. All battles will be moderated live by hosts who can't code and coders who can't host. Winners will be determined by crowd voting.

The Rules at a glance

  • Every battle lasts 25 minutes and you have to write all code from scratch.
  • All code has to be written in (and only in) BONZOMATIC (discuss here).
  • A set of textures will be provided for each round.
  • You can pick your weapon of choice: GLSL or HLSL (DX9 or DX11).
  • The computers will default to EN-US keymap - if you need something specific, let us know beforehand.
  • Competitors are welcome to bring their own keyboard (without memory function).
  • No additional tools allowed (no paper, no memory sticks, no radio, no mobiles, tablets etc.), just you and the computer.

Revision 5k Run

The traditional SPORT(ish) event you all love will happen again: The exhausting fun 5k Run!

And you can be part of it! All you need to do is to bring your running gear and show up at the infodesk on Saturday morning, March 31st at around 11:00 CEST

Even if you're out of shape or very shapely - just do it. Even D.Fox did it at TRSAC and came in superlast! But he prevailed to live another day.

And don't worry about getting lost - we'll take good care of you during the run! We even have prepared a little stop where you can refresh yourself with some nice beverages.

And afterwards, you will feel pain good, tired fuzzy and dead warm inside. You will be on top of the world. And you should have plenty of time to take a shower, grab a beer and be ready for the first compo of the day.

Did we mention that we stole this idea from the TRSAC organizers? Now you know - all credits go to them <3!
