Greetings SoC Students:


If you have ever wanted to test your programming skills, consider participating in the IEEEXtreme 9.0.

Hurry because time is running out.  Students who wish to participate must let Walt Schuller know by 5:00pm on Friday, October 9th. 

The IEEEXtreme 9.0 programming competition is a global challenge in which teams of IEEE Student members from around the world compete against each other solving programming problems during a 24-hour period.  The programming contest starts at 7:00pm on Friday, October 24th, and the contest continues non-stop until 7:00pm the next day (Saturday, October 25).

According to the IEEEXtreme 9.0 website:  “Participants must compete as part of a team.  Teams are comprised of up to 3 IEEE student or graduate student members, but should only include a maximum of 2 graduate student members per team.  All team members must be IEEE student or graduate student members to register and compete in the competition.  IEEE Membership numbers are required during the registration process.“

Walt Schuller and Jim Littleton will serve as proctors during the 24-hour event, which will be held in the labs located on the third floor of building 15 (School of Computing).  A selection of food and refreshments will be provided to the participants throughout the event.

If you are interested in participating in IEEEXtreme 9.0, please email Walt Schuller your name, UNF n-number, and IEEE student membership number.  You may also indicate up to two other students that you wish to be on your team.

This is a great opportunity to test your programming skills while representing the University.

Don’t delay!  October 9th is just around the corner.
