Are you interested in learning how to code? Or do you know how to code and are looking for a challenge? If so, Coding club is for you!

Coding club is a good place to start if you are considering taking the grade 11 programming course, but students of all skills and level of interest are invited to join!

Students with programming experience will get an opportunity to try past ECOO and UW programming contests to prepare for those contests in February and March, and participate in Project Euler online to test their programming prowess!

When we meet

Meet in room 216 at lunch time on Fridays.

This Week’s Contest

If you want to prepare for the University of Waterloo’s Beaver Computing Challenge, you can look at past contests and try out some of the questions.

Friday, October 11: Questions from the 2012 contest.

Friday, October 18: Questions from the 2013 contest.

Friday, October 25: No meeting because of the PA Day, but you can look at questions from the 2014 contest.

Latest news…

Coding Club reboot: this Friday!

If you are keen on refining your programming skills, or want to learn to program, or simply want to hear what programming is all about, come to 216 at lunch to try Coding Club. Students in the grade 11 and 12 computer science and computer programming courses can use this as an opportunity to develop and refine their problem solving skills to prepare for the ECOO and UW programming contests near the beginning of semester 2.

Attendance is not mandatory, feel free to bring your lunch and coding skills!

This Friday we also hope to talk about our first ever Coding Club Spirit wear, please attend if you are interested.

Programmers Club expands meetings

In an effort to accommodate students’ other activities, programmers club will now meet Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays in room 216 at lunch. The idea is that on Mondays we will start working on problems, and on Friday we will meet with a group to look at solutions.

At the beginning of the week there will be a link to the week’s problems posted on our club page on the school website. Members can come to 216 to work when they are able, or at least try to come Friday with their ideas and solutions.

Programmers can choose to work on their solutions in either Turing, Python, or Java.

See Mr. Milardovic for more information

Programmers Club

A reminder to all past members of the Programmers Club that we will be meeting in room 216 at lunch tomorrow. We hope to start talking about the ECOO and UW programming contests. Students with demonstrated prior programming experience can also participate.

Grade 9s and 10s: even if you haven’t programmed, you may want to write the UW’s Beaver Computing Challenge–see Mr. Milardovic in 216 for more details.
