Programming Puzzles & Code Golf Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for programming puzzle enthusiasts and code golfers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

This is not a code golf challenge.

So, at my high school, we're starting a new computer science club, and personally I'd like it to be more than just writing Java stuff (AP Comp Sci curriculum). How would I introduce code golf to everybody and make challenges? Should I conduct research on code-golf techniques, and if so, where should I look? Should I tell everybody about GolfScript? APL?

Also, if you think this needs to be moved to another StackExchange site, please tell me.

It's the same as other [tips] isn't it? Needs to be CW. C'mon be a sport! –  luser droog Nov 16 '12 at 6:13

Vote for reopen as well, while it is off-topic, I feel that the nature of the question would not serve well any other SE site, and these CS club students could all be turn into active users, helping the site even more! –  NRGdallas Nov 16 '12 at 16:49

I think the same challenges should work fine, but for a club there are exciting possibilities for collaboration. You could break into 2or3 person teams and race to be first team to implement a working program. Then sit in a circle and pass the program around, each person having to make one reduction before passing. FWIW

I really like the idea of passing a program between people. If you can't make a reduction, you're out. Last one in is the winner :D –  Leigh Nov 21 '12 at 12:11
    
This is a really cool idea. –  Mindstormscreator Nov 21 '12 at 18:16
