How to take part

  • Put on your glasses
    To take part of the challenge, it's very easy. First, put on the decoder glasses and walk your way around the venue to spot the clues we have left.
  • Find the clues around the venue
    You’ll find the first ones to get you started at the Sonassi stand in the sponsor hall – then beyond that, it is up to you to find and solve the rest.

If you are a developer, then you need to solve the developer puzzles; similarly, for merchants – you want the merchant puzzles.

  • Developer Track
    • - Find the developer puzzle tiles. On each tile, you’ll find a PHP snippet, put all the code together and solve it to get the final answer.
    • - Like Magneto would use his mental powers, this is a test for your mind, so no cheating!
  • Merchant Track
    • - Your tiles have “Merchant” in the top corner – where you’ll find an interesting eCommerce fact and an answer.
    • - Your goal is to find all the tiles and add up the numbers you see on the answers to get a final answer.
    • - Once you have the answer to your puzzle, drop by the Sonassi stand one more time to register your entry.
