Congratulations to both Boise section teams for their outstanding performance in IEEEXtreme 12.0 on Oct 19-20. IEEEXtreme is a global challenge in which teams of IEEE Student members compete in a 24-hour time span against each other to solve a set of programming problems.
The NNU team “BarrysBest” placed 8th and the BSU team “MoroWhiteErway” placed 37th out of 188 US teams. They placed 111th and 497th respectively out of 4049 teams worldwide.
NNU’s team wins the IEEE-Boise section prize, a trip to the 2019 IEEE Rising Stars conference in Las Vegas in January. Their team consisted of Garrisen Cizmich, a junior in Computer Engineering, and Jacob Winters, a junior in Computer Science.
BSU’s team consisted of Jared White and Daniele Moro, both juniors in Computer Science, and Parker Erway, a freshman in Computer Science.
