SSE Programming Competion 2019
What Is This Event?
The annual SSE programming competition is a chance to use what you have learned in your classes in a more “problem solving” oriented series of challenges. Unlike labs which often focus on a product you are implementing, this competition presents a series of real world problems and tasks you to solve them using some form of programming. Featuring a variety of problems spread over all skills and programming topics, there is something for everyone to enjoy.
Location: Cream City Labs in Northwestern Mutual
Date and Time: Saturday, May 4th from 9 AM to 5 PM
