We had a very interesting and well-attended presentation by Dennis last night. Many IEEE and ACM members were present — including six that are members of both! A huge thank you to Dennis for coming to Boise to give this talk (plus the one to S-PAC today) and to the IEEE-CS DVP and ACM DSP programs for sponsoring Dennis.

Dennis’s slides are available here: Dennis Frailey – Frailey – 2022 Report – Final .

IEEEXtreme Competition—BSU Team Finishes in Top 15%

Monday, December 22nd, 2014

As previously reported in our IEEE-Boise section October newsletter:

Congratulations to Boise State team Heuristic Heretics members Jake Blow, Justin Weaver, and Daniel Butler for their outstanding performance in this year’s IEEEXtreme competition—a global challenge in which teams of IEEE student members, supported by an IEEE student branch, advised and proctored by IEEE members, compete in a 24-hour time span against each other to solve a set of programming problems.

All three team members are Juniors majoring in Computer Science and members of the BSU IEEE Student Branch. They finished 33rd out of 238 teams participating in the U.S., and 264th out of 1760 teams participating worldwide.

We would like to thank the IEEE volunteers who proctored at the event and hope to see even more local teams compete next year.
