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.

CCPC Practice Contest

Calgary is hosting a practice on Saturday, March 12. We can register as guests and compete remotely. If there is enough interest, I will organize a local site and we can compete from one of the UGrad labs. Do consider participating!

Other Practices

UBC still holds practices over the weekend. Check here for the schedule. We are invited to participate remotely, email me (zacharyf) if you need a login.


UBC Practice Contests

UBC runs great practices most weekends. The length of the contests seem to vary, but they usually start at 11 on Saturdays. You can practice either individually or with a team.
I will announce the url for the practices before they take place. Send an email to my U. Alberta address (CCID zacharyf) if you want to get a username/password to participate.
