UK and Ireland Programming Contest (UKIEPC) 2015

This year Eduards and I arranged for the Computer Lab to be one of the host universities for the UK and Ireland Programming Contest.  We were one of 12 universities hosting. Cambridge entered 14 teams.

Well done Eduards for organising.  I am the Cambridge coach but he is the one who does all the work. Huge thanks also to Max Wilson and all the other organisers, question setters and tech. support.  The competition was really great.

We did really well this year occupying 10 spots in the top 20 with our top 10 teams coming 1st, 3rd, 5th, 7th, 9th, 11th, 14th, 17th, 19th and 20th.  The final score sheet is here: https://domjudge.bath.ac.uk/domjudge/public/

Congratulations to Eduards (EE Dragons) and Andi (Beuler) who came 1st and 3rd respectively. This means they’ll be progressing to the North Western European Regional Contest (NWERC) for the ACM Intercollegiate Programming Competition.

Also well done to the new Queens’ first years who turned out in force.  We had 4 teams with Queens’ students in them this year which was really great to see.
