The Fall 2010 CS Singles Programming Competition took place at Memorial University this evening. Seventeen students registered for their opportunity to try their algorithmic skills on three problems developed by the Mun Programming Competition committee.
Several CS alumni donated their evening to help referee and support the games. They were kept very busy as runners as the competitors kept very focused on solving the problem sets instead of digging into the piles of pizza and cookies the games committee graciously provided.
The night's big winners were Robert Robere (left), Tim Oram (right), and Stephen Piercey (center). They each took home a programming related text book, Ubuntu mug & install disc, and a Memorial University pen.Fall 2010 CS Teams Programming Competition will be going ahead. To Memorial University CS students still looking for team members to register for this event please login to the CS Society forums and post under "I need a team!". As some additional motivation samples of the team prizes are shown below - you know you want to win them ;)
I'd like to thank all the students, volunteers, and the games committee again for making these CS games possible.
