Memorial University CS Games Team (doubles) Winter 2011 Results

The Winter 2011 CS Team Programming Competition took place last Friday night at Memorial University.  Seven teams, 14 students, took part - trying their skills against the algorithmic conundrums the programming competition committee prepared as their set of three problems.
The students remained dutifully quiet throughout the evening, working on their solutions - barely taking a break to enjoy the drinks, cookies, and pizzas the department of Computer Science & Committee had sponsored.
After two and half hours of competition we were able to draw the games to a close, and tabulate the results. Our game sponsors then took center stage to present our top placements.

Our second place prize was presented by IDBlue's Steven Taylor to Team B: Justin Butt, and Simon McIlhargey.

And finally the first place prize was presented by FuseSource's Jon Anstey to Team A: Melissa Reid, and Ken Collingwood.

I'd like to thank all the students, volunteers, sponsors, and the games committee again for making these CS games possible. I hope to see everyone again for the Fall 2011 Mun CS Games in September.

Tis nice to see a decent turnup. Next year, once I'm free from the academic world, I'm hoping to be involved with the programming competitions a little more.
