This the site of the University of Alberta Programming Contest Club. We are a small group of passionate competitive programmers in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Find out more here.
The Programming Club meets on Fridays 3-5pm in CSC b-41. Show up and
discuss problem statements, descriptions, methods of attack, as well
as sample solutions.
We sometimes do practice contests on laptops. If you don't have one, show up anyway. Some like to practice in teams.
