Competition alert: Join GSA Capital’s coding challenge!

GSA Spark

GSA Capital is inviting students at King’s to compete in a coding challenge, starting at 9:00 on 25th of November and ending at 23:59 on 15th of December! With 21 days of exciting challenges, put your mathematics, coding, and raw ability to the test and compete in GSA Spark! 

In GSA Capital’s boardroom sits a decades-old blade server, the last known machine to run the SPARK operating system, and was an invaluable step toward the sophisticated algorithms in use today but was retired from active trading when its models no longer offered an accurate representation of the ever-changing world. But last night, the unthinkable happened- and SPARK now has a conscience of its own! 

Compete with other students in a race to shut SPARK down before it finds a way to dominate every electronic trading market in the world. A range of exciting daily prizes will be on offer to those brave enough to take on SPARK in a series of fiendishly difficult challenges. The contestant deemed to have been most instrumental in the fight against SPARK will also be eligible to win a grand prize!

Sign up for SPARK today to join the fight!
