Two teams from the Department of Computer Engineering, Unagi (Muhammed İkbal Kazar, Orhan Uysal and Oğuzhan Özçelik) and Redshifted (Yusuf Nevzat Şengün, Ahmet Berk Eren and Nurefşan Müsevitoğlu), placed among the top 10 in this year’s Turkish Programming Contest.
The competition, organized by Inzva, a nonprofit hacker community focusing on AI and algorithms, took place in Beykoz, İstanbul, over three days, Sept. 13–15. Fifty-four teams from 14 universities participated in the event; Unagi ended up taking fifth place, while Redshifted came in eighth.
They and the other top 10 teams were eligible to participate in the Southeastern Europe Regional Contest, which took place October 18–20 in Romania. [Results were not yet available at the time this issue went to press.] The top teams at that event will advance to the world finals, the International Collegiate Programming Contest.
