But we all are interested in computing, in working together, in transcending differences and furthering the future that computing can bring to all of us.

This contest is a chance for each of the contestants to test their skills at comprehension, analysis, problem solving, coding, debugging, resource management, self control, and communication. This is also a chance for coaches to measure the effectiveness of their teaching and leadership.

On Friday we will offer a scripting contest featuring problems specific to scripting languages and offering the choices of Perl, Python or Ruby. If you have a favorite let us know right away and we will see if it is feasible to add it.

On Saturday, we will crown a number of specific champions:

  • Overall champion
  • Best finish for a school with a graduate CS program
  • Best finish for a school without a graduate CS program
  • Best finish for a community or junior college.
  • State champions (Louisiana, Texas, Oklahoma)
