On March 10th 2018, the Department of Mathematics Computing, & Information Sciences at JSU organized a programming contest. Twelve students participated in this edition of the contest, which was divided into Intermediate (up to CS231) and Advanced (CS232 and above) categories. Before the contest, two training sessions were organized to familiarize the students with the rules, platform, and type of exercises. The contest started at 10:00 AM and finished at 3:00 PM; in both the morning and afternoon sessions, the participants were challenged to solve five problems. The teams consisted of one or two students.
At the intermediate level, Sabin Banjara won First Place and George Beason won Second Place. In the advanced category, Joel and Aaron Branham won First Place, and Johnny Lin and John Landers won Second Place. Congratulations to them, and to all who participated in this competition!
The programming contest will be held again in the future, and we urge any student who is interested in participating to contact professors Eric Gamess and Jay Snellen in the MCIS Department.
