Would you consider letting people connect over the network to expose their bots? That way we could run languages you don't support yet (I'd prefer to use either C++ or Erlang, neither of which you seem to support.)

it occurs to me that this is poorly written and could be misunderstood
i don't mean connect from home, of course; that would take away your ability to audit that the opponents are real, and would mean that people's position would be unfair based on the power of their computer
what i mean is, what if we could give you a docker container that connected to a cname
that way you wouldn't have to worry about this guy wanting haskell and that guy wanting ocaml and the other guy wanting intercal

You can certainly program your bot in C++! There's no current starter bot, but multiple bots are laddering in C++ as we speak.

Check the following link: http://theaigames.com/languages/
You can also request them to add a new language.

As the other guys have said we support C++ and quite a few other languages at the moment.
For now, we won't allow for any connections over the internet or a user provided docker container because of security reasons. However the latter I have not researched fully so I'm not sure if it would actually be possible to make that secure.

@SToneCypher: How to prevent people from having big databases, or neural networks available there? Or from connections from such docker containers to an external source?
There are so much ways of cheating you potentially, that I guess the organisers don't want to got there. But as Bafegox said: you always can request for new languages to be added.
