In collaboration with the UNSW Competitive Programming and Mathematics society, CSESoc presents the IMC Coding Competition, sponsored by IMC Trading! This is the perfect chance for keen and interested programmers of all levels to put their problem solving skills to the test in a 2 hour competition and have a chance to win some sweet prizes!
You may enter this competition individually, or in a team of up to 3. Please note that if you are planning to enter as a team, you must enter under one HackerRank account. You are responsible for figuring out how you will coordinate submissions as a team using this account!
Even if you don't manage to win any prizes, the competition be a good experience you can use to see what it's like being under pressure in coding challenges/interviews for internships and jobs! If you're competing with some friends, this should also be a good test of your teamwork and collective problem solving skills!
1st place: $500 cash + IMC Coffee Chat
2nd place: $350 cash
3rd place: $200 cash
Best Diverse# Team: $100
Best Postgraduate Team: $100
Best International Student Team: $100
In order to qualify for prizes, all members of your team must be UNSW students. You are welcome to participate in the competition if you are not from UNSW, however you will not be able to win any prizes.
All cash prizes will be split evenly amongst all members of the corresponding team.
These prizes will be awarded to the highest-scoring team who has not won any of the other prizes. For example, if a team wins 3rd place and is the highest-scoring Postgraduate team, that team would win $200 and the Postgraduate prize would go to the next highest-scoring all-Postgraduate team.
In the event that a team wins multiple special prizes, they will win one of the special prizes, at the discretion of the competition organisers.
# "Diverse" in this case means anyone who does not identify as male (e.g. female, gender non-binary, trans).
* In order to qualify for these prizes, all members of the team must satisfy the requirements of that team (e.g. for the "Best International Student Team" prize, all members of the team must be international students, and for the "Best Diverse Team" prize, all members of the team must be non-male-identifying).
