Think you can code? On October 23, 2010, you can prove it! The IEEEXtreme Programming Competition 4.0, hosted by IEEE, is an innovative global online competition in which you and a team of up to two other IEEE Student Branch members can test your collective coding expertise simultaneously against other student programmers from around the world. Solve and win the world’s most Xtreme programming challenge and your team will be able to claim ultimate bragging rights, be recognized as some of the world’s top up-and-coming programmers, and win an all-expense-paid trip to the IEEE event or conference of the team’s choice – anywhere in the world! Other prizes will include cool gear from our sponsors.

Last year, the IEEE Winnipeg Section was well represented in this international competition with two teams from the University of Manitoba. Burke Libbey, Tim Herd, and Ryan Neufeld made up team “Fedaykin” that was supervised by Dr. Ken Ferens and finished 33rd overall. Team “Bisons” made up of Mark Roy, Stefan Penner (see picture), and Dario Schor placed 43rd overall and was supervised by Dr. Witold Kinsner.
