St Andrews Programming Competition

We’re excited to have AetherStore sponsor the upcoming St Andrews Programming Competition 2014! The AetherWorks team has plenty of St Andrews graduates. Our six alumni have a collective ten computer science degrees, nine of which came from St Andrews, so they’ve logged a lot of hours in the department and look forward to being part of the event.

The programming competition is open to students of all levels and with any amount of programming experience. Teams of three will have three hours to solve a set of programming problems and win £200 worth of prizes. Here’s what the St Andrews School of Computer Science Blog had to say about the competition:

“Generally, programming competitions are aimed at the best programmers, this is a first-of-its-kind competition where students from all levels with any amount of programming experience stand a chance to win a prize. Another unique aspect of this competition is that it has also open to members of staff from the School of Computer Science, making this a fun experience and a bonding opportunity for staff and students.”

The competition will be held Monday, April 7th from 2pm-5pm GMT, and AetherStore will also be providing refreshments. Click here for more details and registration information. Best of luck to all of the participants!
