Students of Mathematics and Computer Sciences to World Finals Programming 2013
Students of Mathematics and Computer Sciences Josse van Dobben de Bruyn, Mathijs van Nes and Bas Nieuwenhuizen will represent Leiden University in the World Finals Programming 2013 in St. Petersburg. From 30 June to 4 July, the 240 smartest programmers from universities around the world will come together at this Championship.
The team ‘Geen Syntax’ (‘No Syntax’) is the only Dutch team represented. Their goal is to end in the top 10 of the world and they are very well prepared. The team scored a second place in the European preliminaries. For the final in St. Petersburg they will be stuck to their chairs for hours to solve ten complex sums. "We all know what our tasks are. One analyzes, the other counts and the third fills in. It is all about the good answers.” We wish you lots of success and of course a Russian medal!
