IEEEXtreme: The Recipe for Success
August 14, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
IEEEXtreme is 24-Hours competitive programming challenge hosted by IEEE in which teams of IEEE Student members, often supported by an IEEE Student Branch and proctored by an IEEE member, compete in a 24-hour time span against each other to solve a set of programming challenges set by industry and academic experts around the world. Teams of up to three student IEEE members receive sets of programming problems over 24 hours on the competition date. All teams receive the same problems to solve and are expected to solve the problems without direct outside consultation. IEEEXtreme Teams don’t need to tackle every problem, but the more they solve, the more points they score. Students submit their solutions using an online tool. Points are awarded based on how the problem was solved, the time it took, and its difficulty. Higher-grade IEEE members serve as judges and proctors for the competition. IEEEXtreme started in 2006 with 40 teams and currently hosting 2600+ teams globally. The competition serves as a platform for student members to compete with talents spread around the world. The talk will focus on the importance of participation in Xtreme like programming competition and efforts taken by IEEEXtreme team to build awareness globally.
