Coming at ya with a quick notice, the Alberta Collegiate Programming Contest is being held this weekend! Our friends over at the Problem Solving Club are hosting it this year, so for more details, visit this link here!
We’ve attached a quick blurb here to explain it, so read on!
The registration for the Alberta Collegiate Programming Contest has now opened and can be found on www.psc.cpsc.ucalgary.ca/acpc, along with information about prizes, rules, eligibility, location, and times.
It will be held on Saturday, October 15, 2016 with prizes totaling over $3000+, so you won’t want to miss it!
It is a team-based programming contest, so gather your team of up to 3 members to maximize your chances of winning.
Like last year, we will be splitting the contest into two divisions:
– Division II will be the less difficult of the two. In order to be eligible for prizes, teams may not have anyone who has taken a data structures and algorithms class (see University of Calgary’s CPSC 319 or CPSC 331 for course descriptions)
– Division I will be for everyone else
Please visit the contest website for more details and specifics.
We hope to see you at the contest!
Secondly, just a reminder we’ve hosting a talk with professors about the concentrations we offer at the U of C tomorrow! We’ll be hosting from 6-8pm, in ST 135, and we’ve got talks from the Human-Computer Interaction and Complexity Theory concentrations! Hope to see you all there!
That’s everything for now, folks!
Until next time, and good luck with all your midterms!
