Yesterday the Schools undergrad team for the IrlCPC Programming Competition and myself went to visit our sponsors Codfiy Ltd. They are located just minutes from the School of Computing. The company was founded by some former graduates & will be celebrating their 12th birthday in just a few weeks. We spent about an hour chatting to them & having some fun playing with their MS Surface, we also took some time out to get some photographs. The competition will take place in a few weeks at the Department of Computer Science, University College Cork and is being organised by the ACM student chapter. At present there are 25 teams fully registered and another half a dozen still waiting to fully complete the registration process. This is the third year of the competition running and for the first time there are two categories – undergrads & staff / postgrads. Last year 16 teams took part, so the level of interest in partaking is clearly going from strength to strength. Our team is represented by three Computer Science undergrads – one in his final year and two in their penultimate year. So here’s wishing our team the very best of luck in the forthcoming competition.
