Leiden 3rd on North-West European Programming Championship
On November 21 a team of three students of Leiden University won the third prize during the North-West European Programming Championship in Bremen (Germany).
By solving in five hours seven algorithmic problems, the Leiden team succeeded in leaving 64 teams behind them. Within several weeks it will become clear whether they will represent North-West Europe during the 2010 World Finals in Egypt. It is not the first time that Leiden scores so well internationally. Also in 2008 a Leiden team became third of North-West Europe.
