IEEEXtreme 4.0 @ MORA

ieeextreme 4.0

IEEEXtreme 4.0 organized by the IEEE concluded successfully today (2010-08-24) morning at 0530h local time. IEEEXtreme is a global challenge in which teams of IEEE student members compete in a 24-hour time span against each other to solve a set of programming problems.

The competition started on 2010-08-24 at 0530h local time (00:00 GMT). This year 37 teams registered for the competition from University of moratuwa. The team “beta” (Members: Varuna Parinda Jayasiri, Chethiya Abesinghe, Lalintha Gayan Polpitiya) has managed to secure the 11th place of the competition this year. Also the teams “Selachimorpha” and “SharpSharks” managed to reach top 50 in the competition.

Hats off for all the teams for the great effort they have given. Coding algorithms for 24 hours straight is not an easy task as it seems. The IEEE Student branch of University of Moratuwa was there with all the participants in the university giving them an immense support providing necessary facilities. So a BIG “THANK YOU” goes to them.

It was a great opportunity for me to take part in the organizing process of an event with that magnitude. And hopefully I’ll be and Xtremer for IEEEXtreme 5.0 !!! 😀
