ACM-ICPC

The ACM-ICPC (Inner Collegiate Programming Competition) is an international, multi-tier programming contest where students from schools all around the world compete to solve challenging programming puzzles under time constraints. If you’re interested in honing your technical skills and learning more about problem solving using algorithms, ACM-ICPC is a great way to gain practical knowledge. We will be talking about all types of competitive programing and you do not need to commit to going to any particular one if you want to just come and learn.
