Are you interested in learning how to code? Or do you know how to code and are looking for a challenge? If so, programmers club is for you!
Programmers 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!
We meet Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays during lunch in room 216. New contests will be posted by lunch time on Monday, and we will hopefully gather as a group on Friday to talk about solutions (or attempts).
Attendance at all meetings is not mandatory, but having fun and learning about programming is!
Check this section every Monday. Friday we will meet to look at solutions. Drop by 216 at lunch Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays to collaborate with other coders on solving the problems. You may use Turing, Python, or Java.
- ECOO 2017 – Local Competition (Round 1) – meet Friday, October 6 to discuss solutions (download the ZIP file, and open up the PDF for round 1 questions)
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
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.
Do you know how to program? Or do you want to learn about programming?
If your answer = “yes” then
go to room 216 Wednesdays at lunch!
