On April 21, 2018 the Faculty of Applied Mathematics of Oles Honchar Dnipro National University held the 1-st Stage of All-Ukrainian Collegiate Programming Contest (AUCPC) which is 1/8 of the ACM ICPC World’s Final.
60 teams from 9 universities and 2 high schools took part in the Contest.
The ceremonial opening began with the words of greeting by Yaanika Merilo, the deputy mayor of Dnipro. The participants were also warmly welcome by Eugene Gostishchev, the director of IT-Dnipro community.
Then the audience was carried away by the speech of Andrey Dereza, the former graduate of the faculty, who was many times a winner of high school and university programming contests. Presently, Andrey Dereza is the head of the R&D center of the company DataArt in Dnipro.
Oleksander Khyzha, the AUCPC coordinator in the Central region of Ukraine, spoke about the rules of the contest and answered the questions.
The Contest is preceded by casting of lots: all the teams must be in equal conditions during the contest.
The Contest has begun. It will last for 5 (!) hours. By the Rules, each team of three students is given one (!) computer.
It proves an extra difficulty in problems solving and programs writing.
Traditionally, the Contest holds in buildings of Oles Honchar Dnipro University and Lyceum of Informational Technologies at DNU.
Any contest comes to its end. In our case, it’s the Ceremonial closing.
The intrigue is kept till the awarding ceremony: who is the winner? As a matter of fact, by the Rules of the Contest, the table of the results does not show the names of the teams, only logins – till the very end.
Deputy mayor Yaanika Merilo says words of appreciation to the contestants and their coaches.
IT companies’ representatives are looking forward to showing their presents.
Who are the winners?
The awarding ceremony starts with the schoolchildren. They have a standalone participation, but their results are often as high as the students’ ones. Children’s prizes are sweet. In the very sense of the word. Tasty tarts are given by the company DataArt. Students and coaches are given adult gifts from IT-Dnipro community by Eugen Gostishchev.
Companies Ruby Garage, AMC Bridge, SiteCore, DataArt, SoftServe and ISD are the members of IT-Dnipro community.
