This past Saturday (March 28th), Oberlin Computer Science’s Team O(Bees) competed at the 2009 Carnegie Melon Invitational Programming Contest. Michael Brooks and Katie Kuksenok competed against almost 30 other teams from schools around the region. They successfully solved 7 out of the 8 problems and took second place in both the “doubles division” as well as 2nd in the overall contest.
The competition was lively as almost all teams solved either four or fewer problems, but the top four teams each solved seven. See the 2009 contest website for the problem sets and a detailed scoreboard.
