Computing Students: IEEEXtreme Programming Contest 2015
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

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
