Talent Maker student CS projects!
Riolku posted 5 months ago

Hello everyone,

I hope you all are well. I would like to inform you of a neat CS opportunity with applications in the real-world. On LinkedIn, there is an organization named TalentMaker, which posts competitions, sponsored by local companies. The most recent competition was one to make a website for a local pharmacy.

These competitions are a great way to get experience in CS, and I encourage you to check them out!

Note: Some of the competitions are for logo design and other categories, so you can check those out too if you are interested.

Stay safe!

This coming wednesday, October the 16th, there will be a team programming contest hosted on The Mackenzie Online Judge.

This contest has two divisions, junior and senior. They should be approximately the same difficulty as the CCC.

Teams comprise of at most 4 students. One computer can be used for programming and an additional computer for accessing resources such as the problem statements and official language reference.

Full rules, scoring and other details can be found here. For practice, refer to last year's MOOSE problems. Do note that you will need to make an account to submit to these problems.

Good Luck and we hope to see you all compete!
