Welcome to the advent calendar of the IEEE Student Branch Passau! As with a real advent calendar, this one has 24 doors, that open one by one. However, this advent calendar does not contain any chocolate, but programming tasks! Until Christmas Eve, we publish a total of 24 problems, that you can solve until the end of the year.
You wonder how all this works? That is quite simple: You can solve the programming tasks in any of the many programming languages available and upload your solution. We evaluate them with some testcases and you get points for each testcase passed. Prices are awarded to the participants with the highest overall score. Find further details in the rules. If something remains unclear, take a look at the FAQ.
Also this year there will be main prizes for the first places and additional vouchers for further places. Here are the slides of the prize ceremony.
We want to thank everybody supporting our advent calendar this year. Special thanks to the Lehrstuhl für Software Engineering II for providing parts of their computer cluster to evaluate the submissions as well as the Zentrum für Informationstechnologie und Medienmanagement der Universität for providing the infrastructure and the web server. We also thank msg systems, ONE LOGIC, Innowerk and Micro-Epsilon for providing tasks and prizes for the advent calendar.
Tasks will be uploaded at 9am CET. Additionally you can find an overview of announced maintenance work and other changes here.
