In collaboration with Microsoft, we are hosting an epic algorithmic programming challenge!

Form teams to compete head-to-head with other students, and challenge yourself to beat a team of Microsoft Software Engineers.

Microsoft is giving away THREE XBOX ONE S consoles, so each member in the winning team will take one home.

There will be free food and drinks, and lots of goodies to give away including Microsoft t-shirts and Frank Green water bottles and coffee cups! Anyone who beats the Microsoft Engineers will take something home.

If you don't have a team, we can form one for you on the fly.


Overview of the contest

  • ICPC-style algorithmic programming challenges.
  • Students will compete in teams of 3 with access to one computer.
  • You will have 2.5 hours to solve a number of algorithmic problems in C/C++, Java, or Python 3.
