This course aims to prepare students for programming contests, specifically ACM ICPC and IEEEXtreme.
We will meet once a week throughout the semester. There will be a lecture component where overview of an algorithm is given, followed by some practice examples. Students without the pre-requisites will need to demonstrate that they have already learned the material elsewhere, or be willing to learn it as the course proceeds. Participants will be expected to participate in a programming related competition within one year of the course.
For some sessions the problemsets are hosted in a codeforces group. In order to be able to submit your solutions to these problems you must:
- Log in with your codeforces account
- Register yourself as a participant (not spectator) in that group
- For upcoming sessions, register yourself for the relevant contest
Tutors: Oliver-Matis Lill, Benson Muite, Yauhen Yakimenka
