Life's Challenges

blogicon-20110416.gifA new challenge has been posted. The subject is John Conway's Game of Life.

The primary challenge is to demonstrate a functioning "Gosper Gun" running as quickly as possible on a 40x40 grid. This challenge affords many opportunities for optimization. It should be interesting to see how participants choose to tackle the problem.

A secondary challenge is also provided for those brave or foolish enough to attempt. Same rules, but with a grid and pattern 100 times larger in size.

Entrants are encouraged to submit any sort of interesting tricks they've used to solve this problem, even if they aren't the fastest methods they have come up with. Like all challenges, prizes include bragging rights, expanded horizons, and camaraderie.

Entries should be submitted before May 1st. See the challenge topic for more details.
