Remember that California gaming company from a year ago, looking for coders to work for six weeks?

IGN is back. Its “no resumes allowed” program again involves recruiting people for six weeks, and possibly more. IGN says it cares little about where people went to college, or if they did, or what their experience is.

Its president, in fact, points out that “the average age someone learns to code is 13.4.”

The application deadline for Code-Foo 2012 is April 30. Applicants should hear back by May 18 as to their status. Last year, 75,000 ending up viewing the application, 104 completed it, 30 were selected to participate, and eight were hired.
