IEEEXtreme Programming Competition 13.0 Information Session – October 1, 2019

Dear University Undergraduate & Graduate Student Programmers,

Want to put your programming skills to the test? How about for 24 straight hours!? Then sign up to compete in the IEEEXtreme Programming Competition 13.0!

Students from the University of Manitoba IEEE Student Branch, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Computer Science, ENGAP, or any other University Department, are encouraged to participate in this international programming competition. Our location for the competition will be in E2-609 EITC, at the University of Manitoba Fort Garry campus. The event runs Friday October 18th at 7pm until Saturday October 19th at 7pm.

In order to compete in the event you must be registered as either a student member or a graduate student member of the IEEE. You compete in teams of up to 3 people, and each team requires a proctor (IEEE Member Supervisor). The registration deadline is October 7th and registration can be done here:

Starting to sound complicated? Do you already have questions like:

  • How do I become an IEEE student member?
  • How do I register for the competition?
  • How do I find a proctor?
  • What languages are supported?
  • I don’t have a ton of programming experience, will this be fun anyway?
  • Really, 24 hours? Do I need to stay the whole time, and more importantly, do I get fed?
  • I’m interested but don’t have a team and I want one. Help?
  • I heard that this year there are prizes for our local teams? Is this true?

Then please join us at our:

IEEEXtreme Programming Competition 13.0 Information Session:

5:30-6:30 pm, Tuesday October 1st, in E2-330 EITC, University of Manitoba Fort Garry campus.

The information session will consist of a short presentation of what to expect, including some tips, and how to participate in the IEEEXtreme Programming Competition. The presentation will be delivered by students that have participated in past competitions. There should be ample time for questions, looking for potential teammates and/or assisting with getting teams registered and finding proctors.

If you are unable to attend this information session due to scheduling conflicts, please contact Jolene at umkoza (at) myumanitoba (dot) ca and we will email you the presentation shortly after the info session. Alternatively if there are any general questions please feel free to contact Jolene directly.
