Setting the bar high for next year with 79 correct solutions out of 117 submissions!

On April 2, Carleton’s School of Computer Science held its annual CodeGuru programming competition for undergraduate students. Led by Prof. Tony White, the competition consisted of two levels — junior and senior — and tested the students’ abilities to solve programming problems in Java, C or C++ in a three-hour contest.

All participants were given the option to use any of the three languages to solve the competition problems. The junior and senior student who solved the most problems in the shortest amount of time won their respective competition, took home a $150 BestBuy gift card, and perhaps most importantly, claimed the title of CodeGuru for 2016!

And our winners are…

Olivia Perryman won the title of Junior CodeGuru 2016 when she solved five problems, setting a new record for her competition category.
