Think You Can Code? Prove it at IEEEXtreme!
Calling all EECS students!
Have you ever wished you could compete against the brightest young mind in the world and prove that you are one of the best programmers? Well on the 23th October 2010, you can do it!
The IEEEXtreme Programming Competition 4.0 is an innovative 24-hour global online competition in which you and a team of up to two other students can test your collective coding expertise simultaneously against other student programmers. Solve and win the world’s most Xtreme programming challenge and your team will claim ultimate bragging rights, be recognized as some of the world’s top up-and-coming programmers, and win an all-expense-paid trip to the IEEE event or conference of the team’s choice – anywhere in the world! Other prizes will include cool gear from the competition sponsors.
The competition will run from Midnight-UTC (1:00am BST) on Saturday 23th October until Midnight-UTC on Sunday 24th October and the participants will compete in real time with all the other teams in the world! (last year 130 student teams from 31 countries around the world competed in IEEE Xtreme!)
Even though the competition is global and online you still need to be at an official venue to compete. Good news: here at Queen Mary the IEEE Student Branch has arranged a venue with computers, internet access, free food and drinks, etc. for the EECS students that would like to participate in the competition!
All the participants will receive gift bags from IEEE and the Queen Mary IEEE Student Branch will award additional cash prizes to:
– the first local team to register for the competition
– the local team with the youngest average age
– the local team achieving the highest rank in the competition
