The Innovators in Technology (INT) student association put together its first programming contest, “BringINTon,” from March 16 to 30.
This type of event is common in computer science departments in colleges around the world, helping prepare students to resolve problems in the real world.
The event launched with a logic programming workshop on March 16. Students could practice resolving issues, building algorithms, and applying important programming structures to gain experience.
From March 17 to 29, participants had access to support and additional training from a Slack channel set up specifically for the contest. They practiced resolving bugs on programming servers and following algorithm tutorials.
The event culminated in a student competition on March 30, to win the top honors.
Congratulations to Alexandre Lepage (Computer Science Technology - Video Game Programming), Leandro Fortunato Carvalho (Computer Science Technology - Programming) and Mauricio Dias (Computer Science Technology - Programming), who won first, second and third place respectively.
