The next Waterloo-local ACM-style programming contest will be held on Saturday, September 30, 2017 in MC 3003.
All members of the UW community are invited to try their programming skill in Racket, C, C++, Java, Pascal, Python or Scala!
The results of this local contest will be used to select the UW teams for the international ACM competition. We will send three or more teams of three students each to the East Central North America Regional in Windsor on October 27–28, 2017.
