We are happy to share the great news!
Our students from the Software Engineering department passed to ICPC World Finals which will be held in October. Students from AUCA will participate in the 2019-2020 World Finals which previously was postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Whats is ICPC World Finals?
ICPC World Finals is an annual multi-tiered programming competition where the brightest collegial minds of the planet gather to compete in the top tier of the International Collegiate Programming Contest (ICPC). These World Finalists, the top 2% advancing from the ICPC Regionals, are among the best of the best future software engineers, computer scientists, developers, and founders of the mission-critical digital services essential to serve the needs of today’s communities across the globe.
Let's congratulate the team from our university AUCA-1, which consists of three brilliant minds:
Here's the small interview with their first impression after passing to the final:
"I have always dreamed of getting to the ICPC World Finals because this is the most prestigious competition in sports programming. When I found out that we could go to the final, at first I was in a slight shock. I couldn't believe it, and, to be honest, I still can't believe that we are going there, and with what a composition! The three of us never managed to get together, but now we have a chance to prove ourselves!" - Amangeldi Zhusubaliev.
"For me, the news about the passing to the final was a pleasant surprise, since it is very difficult to pass from our region. It is a great honor for us to participate in the final, which brought together the strongest teams in the world. Now I am full of motivation to prepare for the final." - Azamat Kydyraliev.
"When I found out that I was going to participate in the ICPC World Finals, I couldn't believe it for a long time. The three of us tried to get there for a very long time, and in the end, everything turned out very unexpectedly, and even as part of a team with whom I always dreamed of being there. Now I'm just happy and looking forward to the opportunity to prove myself in the final!" - Azamat Derkenbaev.
On the eve of the final, we would like to wish you success and good luck from the whole AUCA family!
