Microsoft Coding Competition

Tonight was the Microsoft Coding Competition, essentially a hackathon sponsored by Microsoft. It was ran by the recruiters who were at the career fair yesterday. You were able to team up with 2 other friends and try to complete as many coding problems as possible. Whichever team had the most points at the end of a two hour span won.

Myself and another friend teamed up. There were a total of 6 problems, some having different point values. The problems were surprisingly difficult, especially for a two hour event, but then again this was Microsoft and you need to be the best. My friend and I did not win, unfortunately. We were glad to get some problems and see our team name up on the leaderboard at least, and get some free food of course.

I’m glad I went. It was definitely an experience and I had fun. I even won a t-shirt! So that was cool. I am saving all the problems that were a part of the competition to do on my own time for more practice.
