ACM Programming Contest 2008Tonight I was a guest at the ACM Programming Contest (Hong Kong) 2008 held at the City University of Hong Kong. This year also marked the 20th anniversary of ACM Hong Kong Chapter, ad Prof Francis Chin (below) of the University of Hong Kong gave an insightful speech about the changes seen in the last twenty years in computer science, and looking forward to the next decades.
I took a look at the questions that the students teams had to tackle in the time of an afternoon. Well, I was not sure if I could do what they have accomplished twenty years ago myself, and I am certainly not trying to sound humble!
