Waterloo Programming team, coached by Cheriton Computer Science Professor Ondrej Lhotak, won a Bronze Medal at the ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest World Finals held this past weekend in Orlando, Florida. The team, comprised of Tyson Andre (1A SE), Brian Bi (1A CS), and Hanson Wang (2A CS), placed 12th overall and 2nd in North America. One hundred and five teams who won their regional contest competed. The contest challenges teams of three university students to solve eight or more complex, real-world problems, with a five-hour deadline. Crowded around a single computer, competitors race against the clock in a battle of logic, strategy and mental endurance. Congratulations to the team! View full results.
