misof writes “Roughly a thousand teams from all around the globe have already
registered for IPSC 2010, which takes place on
Sunday, June 6. $3,000 in prize money (courtesy of Facebook, Inc.) is waiting for the best few of them. Participation is free and the contest is open to everybody. IPSC is what you could call a programming contest with a twist. Over the years, the problems always push the boundary and go
beyond the usual stuff you see in a programming contest. For example, in past few years the contestants have had to understand how arithmetic in computers differs from that in mathematics, produce a sequence of cache requests that generates many page faults,
a logic puzzle given as a Flash game
, and
images to evaluate a rock-paper-scissors game
