Successful entries show the number of attempts made to get a correct submission.
Since 1991, the Computer Science Division has sponsored an informal programming contest each fall, the top placers of which form that year's Berkeley teams in the annual ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest (``ACM'' stands for the Association for Computing Machinery). Contests like this are becoming common. Here's an article on the subject.
As in the ACM contests, our contestants have five hours in which to write working solutions (in C, C++, or Java) to about eight programming problems. We score by the number of correct solutions, breaking ties on the basis of the total time required to complete the correct submissions and the number of incorrect submissions.
If you are interested in participating, watch for announcements on this page and elsewhere. In the meantime, we've provided some suggestions on how to prepare yourself for our local contest and the ACM contests.
Here are some problems that have been posed in other contests.
