ANZAC 2012 Programming League at University of Auckland

06 March 2012

The Department of Computer Science is hosting the ANZAC 2012 Programming League at University of Auckland again this year (on selected Saturdays). The first one was scheduled on 31-Mar-2012 and was planned as a warm-up to prepare for programming contests. This year the Australian organizer expects to add more easy-level problems to the 5-hour problem sets, in addition to challenging ones that were predominant for the last few ANZAC contests (rounds).

No costs to the student. Please visit the web site below for more information. (Anzac Programming League)

Please send/email Michael Dinneen names of teams (up to 3 members) as soon as possible.

This year the Auckland Site will most likely be held in First Floor Tutorial Laboratory (303-175) from 2pm-7pm (at least for the first semester's rounds).

The competing teams can be composed for personal learning purposes or to prepare you for the NZ and ACM contests held in Semester 2. If you are interested but don't have a team we can try to make compatible teams during the first few rounds of the league.

The dates for rounds 4-6 in semester 2 are 04 August 2012, 18 August 2012 and 01 September 2012.

Think of the ANZAC Programming League as a Bowling League where one practices programming mainly for pleasure to get better (more efficient). You don't have to compete in all rounds or be on the same teams throughout the year.
