On 22 February, EDICOM collaborated with the UPV’s Ada Byron University Programming Contest. The event took place at the Higher Technical School of Computer Engineering of the Polytechnic University of Valencia. The aim was for students on computer science degree courses to gauge their programming skills and abilities.
Throughout the five-hour session, over 60 students from different Valencian universities tried to solve the 10 problems set by the organization. Students had to program their solutions in C, C ++ or Java. The students, belonging to the Jaume I University, Alicante University and the Polytechnic University of Valencia, were grouped in teams.
At the end, the participants learnt how to solve each of the problems proposed. The sponsors then awarded the prizes to the teams that resolved most cases. Two EDICOM employees ended up on the podium.
Ada Byron University Programming Competition
Ada Byron is a university programming contest for students enrolled in the computer science degrees at the public universities of the Community of Madrid. No distinctions are made between the different grades or itineraries, so it allows the participation of any student taking IT degree courses, regardless of whether they are more focused on software or hardware development.
The contest was devised in 2015 to encourage participation of the students in the Community of Madrid in international university competitions such as the SWERC, as the representation of Madrid universities had been in free fall. The initiative has been extended to other regions such as the Valencian Community Andalusia or Murcia.
