Hello World,


We have a few updates, special thanks and the upcoming programming contest held by CPC.


Hope you had a restful and productive reading week. Ours was jam packed in the beginning with the Hackathon which commenced the Saturday and Sunday kicking off the reading week. We’re happy it went great and it wouldn’t be so without so many people. That is why I’d like to take the time to thank the participants, hope to see you again next year (remember free Chinese food), our sponsors and a very special and dear person to us, our president, Emily Chow, who without, the event would’ve not been on it’s feet. (Thank you Emily-chan-senpai).

Also congratulations to the teams that ended up winning, the standings are below:

  1. Tig Ol’ Bitties
  2. Binary Bros.
  3. A Chewed-Up String (also won Best .tech/Website section).

We hope to have many returning participants and new ones next year.
