In memoriam

Wednesday, November 9th, 2016

6. novembril 2016 lahkus ootamatult meie hulgast IEEE 20-aastase staažiga liige Eiko Kängsep.

IEEE Eesti sektsioon mälestab Eikot kui head kolleegi, inseneri ja vabatahtlikku ning avaldab kaastunnet tema lähedastele. Eiko on olnud IEEE Eesti sektsiooni kohusetundlik ja alati abivalmis varahaldur selle algusaastatest 2005-2006 kuni lahkumispäevani, enam kui 10 aastat. Eiko valmistus ametit sujuvat üle andma ning tema kaasalöömine IEEE-s juures jätkunuks – lisaks varahaldurile oli Eiko sektsiooni Hariduse ja SP/CAS/SSC üksuste liige. Sektsiooni senistel muutlikel tegevus- ja kasvuaastatel on Eiko olnud üheks kindlaks ühenduslüliks, mis on aidanud sektsiooni pärandit tekitada ja hoida. Peame seda meeles.

Ärasaatmine 10. novembril 2016 kell 14:00 Pärnamäe Krematooriumis.

IEEEXtreme 10.0 success

Monday, October 24th, 2016

13 teams took part of this year anniversary IEEEXteme programming competition, 8 from Tallinn University of Technology and 5 from University of Tartu (one team was formed in Narva College of UT). The result was impressive because a team – VertexCover from UT reached to the 1st place in leaderboard, sharing the same score with teams from Switzerland, Iran and Australia! Three teams from UT were in the fist hundred, three teams from TUT in the second hundred, meaning that about half of teams were good enough to belong to the top 10% of participants around the globe.

Great job, Estonian teams (ordered according to place in leaderboard): VertexCover, eSchmetterlinge, Enceladus, singleSpace, 50MoreLinesOfCode, SuperFly, TheEbony, TheTeamTeam, CodeZal, suvakas, ChildrenCoding and NarvaCollegeCode!
