About

Protohackers is a casual programming challenge in which you create servers for network protocols.

  • You are given a network protocol spec.
  • You implement the server and inputs its IP address and port number.
  • Your server is automatically checked.
  • Once all checks pass, your solve time goes onto a global leaderboard.
  • New problem every ~3 weeks.
  • They start easy and get harder.

Protohackers is created by James Stanley. Feel free to email me on jes@protohackers.com or join the Discord group or follow @Protohackerscom on Twitter.
