Are you a programmer or hacker with a flair for coding under pressure? Does the word "algorithm" send chills down your spine? If so, the Stanford Local Programming Contest is for you!
WHAT IS THIS ALL ABOUT?
Once again, Stanford will be hosting a local programming contest to select the six individuals who will represent Stanford at the 2007 ACM Pacific NW Regional Contest and will have a chance to compete at the 2008 ACM ICPC World Finals in Alberta, Canada!
Palantir Technologies will be sponsoring free pizza following the contest, so come and hang out with us!
