What is a programming contest?

A programming contest is designed to test problem-solving and programming skills in an Olympic-style context. Teams of three are allocated a single computer and given a number of problems to attempt in a set time (typically 5 hours) using any of the contest languages (currently C, C++, Java and Pascal).

The 2011 New Zealand Contest Results

The New Zealand Programming Contest is held at sites around New Zealand during the latter half of the year.

Please note that the New Zealand Programming Contest is not connected with the ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest. The ACM has its own web sites, one for the South Pacific Regional Contest and the Main ACM web site.
