Main goal of the event is bringing computers and computer programming closer to the broader audience. At the same time to demonstrate advantages of using and adapting computational power. Computers are entering in every aspect of our life. The question is if we know how to fully use this fast growing technology. Previous two weeks we organized seventeen events, which were spread in region of Eastern Slovenia, from Ravne na Koroškem to Ormož.
In a case you missed events this year, you might check again for them next year.
The University Programming Marathon (http://tekmovanja.acm.si/upm) is an all-Slovenian competition for students in their programming skills with an emphasis on knowledge of data structures and algorithms. The ASMx64 team, consisting of Vid Keršič, Niko Uremović, Mitja Žalik won this year's title of the Champion of the University of Maribor. Second place went to Martin Domajnko, Tilen Koren and Jakob Kordež. Members of both teams are students of the Computer Science and Information Technologies study programme. Both teams will participate in the regional competition CERC 2019 (https://contest.felk.cvut.cz/19cerc/), which will be held from 29th of November to 1st of December 2019 in Prague, Czech Republic, hosting teams from Austria, Czech Republic, Croatia, Hungary, Poland, Slovakia and Slovenia.
The best teams will continue to the World Finals 2020 in Moscow, Russia.
