IEEEXtreme is a global programming competition where IEEE students compete against each other in teams composed of up to 3 people. The competition has an unconventional timespan which lasts 24 hours and it usually starts on a Saturday of October at 00:00 (UTC +0) for everyone around the globe.
During that period the teams are asked to solve algorithmic challenges using their programming language of preference.
The competition platform supports more than 20 different programming languages, including all the popular ones.
This is making it easier for the majority of students to compete as all common programming languages taught at school are covered.
All students are able to join the IEEEXtreme as the challenges set contains challenges of all kinds of difficulty levels.
Up to now there always were challenges that can be solved by junior students and also there were mind boggling challenges for the advanced and experienced students.
Junior students, by joining early they get experience on how to handle the workload with their team members and perform efficient time management based on their skill set.
Participation in more competitions allows them to improve as a team for the years to come and greatly improve their ranking in the future.
We observe that there is retention of contestants as many compete in multiple competitions year after year.
A sponsor may request for a specific challenge to be addressed during the competition and/or set parameters to a challenge.
We hope to get your support in the biggest programming competition of IEEE which is composed of ~10.000 contestants and several hundreds of volunteers around the world!
