INdT supports Programming Marathon UFAM 2012Monday, 26 Nov 2012
Competition mobilizes undergraduate and graduate seeking new software solutions, fostering creativity and teamwork
Nokia Institute of Technology was one of the supporters of Programming Marathon organized by the Institute of Computing at the Federal University of Amazonas (iCOMP / UFAM) 2012, realized in Brazil by the Brazilian Computer Society, in partnership with the Carlos Chagas Foundation, and that makes part of a worldwide competition sponsored by the ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest supported by IBM. The regional stage AM / RR is the final qualifier for Brazil, which is part of the South American stage, qualifying for the finals of this world programming contest.
The competition is aimed at undergraduate and postgraduate in Computer Science (Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Information Systems, Computational Mathematics, among others). The goal is to promote creativity in problem solving, the ability to work in teams, the ability to solve problems under pressure, always applying theoretical concepts and advanced programming methods, which prepare students for major scientific challenges and labor market, serving as a basis in the search for new solutions in software development and technological innovation in general.
“Supporting this competition gives us the opportunity to participate in the development of new software solutions, thus contributing to the professional development of students,” says the human resources manager INdT, Vanessa Milon.
In total, 16 teams participated in the tournament, being formed by students of all universities in Manaus: FUCAPI, IFAM, UEA, UNINORTE UFAM E (E iCOMP ICET). Check out the list of winners and more information at www.facebook.com / maratonadeprogramacao.manaus.
“Students who participate in these competitions Programming acquire a differentiated profile, because they can apply advanced theoretical knowledge to solve problems of various types and complexities, as well as aspects of working capacity for abstraction, great creativity, teamwork and high productivity pressure, being coveted by large technology companies and major centers of research & development, “says the professor and researcher Rosiane Rodrigues de Freitas (iCOMP / UFAM), competition director and member of the ACM ICPC.
