This 3rd April, ICTSS Education Bureau together with Electrical Engineering Student’s Association (ECESA) is organizing the second IIUM Code Jam. This time around, there would be 8 problem to be solved in 3 hour. In case you don’t know what is IIUM Code Jam, IIUM Code Jam is basically a competitive programming competition modeled after the ACM-ICPC (International Collegiate Programming Contest). In this contest, teams of 3 will compete against each other in a contest that test their problem solving and programming skill. Each team will be given 8 problems of varying difficulties in which they will have to solve through programming. The team that solve most problem win.

Last year, 12 teams compete against each other within 3 hours. In the end, team “Error” emerge victorious with 5 question answered out of 8. Team “The Troj@an” and “no direction” won second and third place respectively while team “Potato” won the “All Sister Team Champion” award.


This year, IIUM Code Jam will have more prizes. In addition to the 4 prizes, we are adding 1 more category, the “Best Newcomer Team Award”. This category is eligible for teams in which none of the team member had entered any competitive programming before. Whats more, for each problem we are giving a complementary prize for the team that solves that particular problem first. So in total there would be 8 additional complementary prize. Additionally, the Champion team would receive 3 power-bank as special prizes. Of course, like last year, for each problem solved, regardless of time, each team will receive a balloon. In summary:

  • For every team:
    • A balloon for each problem solved per team.
    • A participation certificate for each team member.
    • A complementary prize for each problem if the team solve it first.
  • “Best Newcomer Team” award:
    • A medal for each team member.
    • A hamper.
  • “Best All Sister Team” award:
    • A medal for each team member.
    • A hamper.
  • Third place:
    • A medal for each team member.
    • A hamper.
  • Second place:
    • A medal for each team member.
    • A bigger hamper than third place’s hamper.
  • Champion:
    • A medal for each team member.
    • A bigger hamper than second place’s hamper.
    • 3x Power-bank.
    • The ability to say “We won IIUM Code Jam 2016″.
