Today, the Pex team is thrilled to announce a great makeover for pexforfun.com, adding several new features:

IntelliSense

That’s right, when you hit the ‘.’ after a name in the code editor, you get code completion, in your browser. Just as in Visual Studio!

Well, almost. It currently only works for a subset of C#, and only for a few trigger keys. We are working on it; check back soon for an even better experience. The Pex team would like to thank Herman Venter for his help in getting this feature working.

High Score List

imageClick the new Community link on the main page to see how your Coding Duel skills compare to other people! In the community area, you find High Score Lists, as well as Coding Duels that other people have published.  Sign in and check the High Score List box in your Settings to allow other people to see your nickname in the High Score List. (Btw: We have replaced the earlier medal concept with an easier points concept.)

Publishing

imageWinning a Coding Duel feels great, but what is even more fulfilling is creating a new Coding Duel and see other people win it! It’s easy now, just follow this tutorial, and your very own Coding Duels will appear on the pexforfun.com website, together with your nickname.

Dynamic Ranking
