Cracking Simudyne’s 2022 Hunger Games

“I volunteer! I volunteer as tribute!”​

Congratulations to Cesc Canet on winning the First Annual Simudyne Hunger Games! Each year we look to host a developer challenge where devs, modellers, and quants take an existing model, implemented in the Simudyne SDK, and look to make improvements to the model. This years competition was based on an implementation of a high-speed factory simulation built by Dr. Benjamin Schumann in the Simudyne SDK.

The objective was to reduce the compute time of the simulation by refactoring the code or architecture of the simulation model. Cesc was able to reduce the compute time by a wapping 86%! To learn about how Cesc found the SDK and the approach he used in his refactoring that won him the competition, read his original post
