Crowdsourced Computing

Engine Yard posted a programming contest that requires a ton of computing power. So over the weekend, we decided to make a crowdsourced solution. Pitch in and run our application — it will automatically search for solutions and send the best ones back to us. If you find the best solution using our system, we’ll give you half the prize (a new iphone 3gs or $2000 of cloud computing time).

You can learn more about our implementation on our contest website.

See the top scores as they come in at our leaderboard.
