Same procedure as every day: It is late in the evening and you're still sitting at your office desk and listening to some music. Suddenly a siren sounds through all rooms, the doors are closing automatically and you cannot open them anymore. A light green mist appears and some creepy shapes wander around the hall. Sometimes you really hate Mondays …
This brings us to the main topic: For the third time in its history freiesMagazin organizes a programming contest. In the first one (German text) you needed to switch gems, the second was a little bit more challenging in steering a robot through a factory (German text). This time the task is easier: Run for your life because zombies are attacking. (If you do not like zombies, imagine some freaky aliens, poisonous giant spiders or something else.)
Here is a last overview of the requirements for participating in the contest (for more details see the links in the table of contents at the left side):
