Not in the mood for chocolate but you like the thought of an Advent calendar? You don't know what to do with all the time until Christmas? Then take the challenge and participate in the Advent calendar of the IEEE Student Branch Passau!
This is already the 8th iteration of our big programming Advent calendar with a small (or bigger) challenge for each day. We provide interesting tasks for novice coders as well as experienced developers.
Just write a small program in the language of your choice - we support 20! - upload it to our website and see, if you mastered the challenge. The best participants will, as every year, win great prices.
Interested? Register at https://advent.ieee.uni-passau.de and start solving your first task. As last year, we provide the tasks in English as well as in German, so everyone - even world wide - can enter the contest.
Special thanks go out to our sponsors, the Chair of Software Engineering II at the University of Passau, for providing us with a cluster of evaluation systems, the Centre for Information Technology and Media Services for providing the infrastructure. We also thank msg systems, ONE LOGIC, Innowerk and Micro-Epsilon for providing tasks and prizes for the advent calendar.
