Achievements of IEEEXtreme 10.0

31 Jan 2017

As we all know IEEEXtreme is a worldwide programming competition that tests our analytical skills and thinking ability to solve a particular problem. When we look at UCSC, there were hundreds of students who participated in the competition. Teams were formed of three members each, guided by a senior IEEE member. There were hard questions indeed but some were easy which should be all coded using C, C++, C#, Java, Python, Ruby, Perl, or PHP, the supportive languages for this competition.
