SMSPortal’s Crack the Code off to a flying start – Crack it and win R10 000

The race is on as South Africa’s software developers have the next 3 weeks to attempt to solve the weekly “Crack the Code” competition.

The weekly winner will be walking away with R10 000 in cash for just 15min of their time.

Initiated by leading software development house SMSPortal, the challenge seeks to create interest in coding as a fulfilling career for South Africa’s brightest.

“We are wanting to create greater interest in software development, Crack the Code is a fun way to achieve that. We had such an exciting campaign last year and we decided to add a few extras to it this time round”, said James Pearce, SMSPortal IT Director.

SMSPortal’s national “Crack the Code” competition is open to anyone. To enter follow this simple process:

  1. Decrypt the cipher to discover the ShortCode number.
  2. SMS your full name to the ShortCode number in order to receive the URL link to the 15min coding test.
  3. Score the highest on the coding test and win yourself R10 000 in cash.

The first round commences on Monday 23 January at 09:00am and entrants will have until the next morning at 08:59am to enter. The winners of each round will be announced the following week.

“This years challenge has a cipher to decrypt and adds a new challenge, but the ultimate prize will motivate the worthy winners to crack both the cipher and coding test. Good luck!”, concluded Mr Pearce.
