Programming Contests

I serve as the coach of the UMW programming teams which compete in the ACM regional programming contest each November.

I also host a local programming contest here at UMW each Spring. The following page provides information on the contests as well as an archive of all of the past problems, including descriptions, test cases and sample solutions.
