Team Intec’s strong showing in the Caribbean International Collegiate Programming Competition (ACM-ICPC) finals held November in Cuba’s Informatics Sciences University (UCI) boosted them to the Poland world tourney as one of the region’s representatives.
Teamwork, the analysis of algorithmic problems and the fast development of software are the key in the world competition, for which the students were trained by Santo Domingo Technological Institute engineering systems professors Carlos Joa and ACM-ICPC local director Eligio Cabrera.
The training included participation in preparatory competitions in the areas called “Challenge”, on programming challenges, as well as in heats pitting the teams which classified for the world meet.
