IEEE XTreme Programming Competition

Please take a moment to watch this Xtreme video. This 24 hour programming competition has been rapidly growing internationally and is in its 10th year. USA has had weak showing, and so we have a responsibility in Region 2 to showcase our dedication and talent. Furthermore, the first place prize is an expenses paid trip to an IEEE conference of your choice, anywhere around the world. That’s an incredible opportunity, and all you have to do is compete.

Registration is open now through Monday, October 12th, and the date of the competition is Saturday, October 24th. Before registering though, please check the rules and eligibility page.

As the IEEE Region 2 Xtreme Ambassador, I will be your primary point of contact. If you register, please let me know so I can add your name to the Region 2 list, and if you have any questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to email or call me.
