1st place for School of Computing in the Irish Collegiate Programming Contest

IrlCPC School of Computing Team

The first ever Irish Collegiate Programming Contest hosted by the University College Cork AGM Student Chapter was held on Saturday the 17th April 2010 in Cork. Fourteen teams from around Ireland competed from University Limerick, DIT, IT Carlow , UCC, Maynooth and DCU. Two teams entered from DCU School of Computing and achieved overall 1st place and 4th place!

The IrlCPC competition is based on teams of 3 students and a coach. The students are all on undergraduate degrees, while the coach can be either a full time researcher or member of academic staff. Each team had only one computer to solve a set of 10 problems within 4 hours. No internet connection was allowed to the teams. The teams were allowed use any programming language they liked, however Java and C/C++ were favoured. Each was tested against several data input tests and could receive up to 100 points. The team scoring the highest number of points was deemed the winner.
