This is Robbie B reporting for you live from Dublin, here at the starting blocks of the first developers.ie Guerilla Code Party.  The competitors are starting to arrive and we're all set for this marathon of coding madness to begin.

The competition will kick off shortly as the code jockeys are divided into teams and given their mission objectives.  Then each hour, on the hour, they'll be judged on how far they've come toward reaching their goal.

It's eXtreme Sports meets eXtreme Programming!  It's got more .NET than a football pitch!  It's got judges that won't allow video replays!  And if you want to follow all the action from the comfort of your RSS feed over the course of the day, the place to be is Paschal's blog.

...and they're off!
