Format and Details

We will provide teams with a login to our lab machines under Linux. The competition will be done using HackerRank, so students can use any of the languages supported by HackerRank. We suggest that you have your students try out the HackerRank system before showing up to the competition. Our systems include compilers/interpreters for most languages as well as a number of IDEs and text editors that your students can use outside to write and test code before submitting to HackerRank.
