GEHACK x 50/50 First Year Programming Contest

Useful for first year students

Are you tired of constantly losing all your programming competitions? Don't worry, happens to the best of us. But even for someone like you, there is plenty of room for fun to be had! If you want to improve your programming skills, or instead maybe you want to make the lives of other programmers more difficult, then the FYPC is just the activity for you! During the FYPC you will be solving a programming problem set, but there is a twist. Or perhaps we should say Twister? During the competition, you will have to take on various challenges against other teams. These range from racing around on bikes to seeing who is the better dancer in Just Dance. If you manage to win, nothing will happen. If you lose, however, oh boy do we have bad news! There will be various punishments, from your mouse moving to a random coordinate and clicking to... Actually, we do not want to spoil the fun just yet ;). We will provide free lunch during the day and there will also be a "borrel" (social drink) at the end of the competition. So not only is there a ton of fun to be had, but it will also be cheaper than staying at home! Practical information:

  • The competition is intended for groups of three, you can sign up as a group of two, but groups of three have priority.
  • The competition is intended for the first years. However, you are still allowed to participate as a higher year. When drawing the teams, we will prioritize first-year teams. Furthermore, punishments will be more severe to keep everything fair.
  • The competition will take place on the 27th of May and last somewhere until 18:00 with a social drink afterwards.
  • Only one member of every team has to fill in this form
  • There is a maximum of 23 teams. If there are more teams subscribed at the moment of closing, we will hold a draw.
