Contest Information

Contest Description

IDI Open is a programming contest where teams of up to three people show up and solve programming problems of various types. The contest lasts five hours, and the objective is to solve as many problems as the team can. The contest is open for all kinds of programmers, from students of all grades to professors and professionals. Not all types of teams are eligible for prizes though, so you might want to check out prize eligibility before assembling a team (if that's one of your motivations for signing up for the contest).

There are usually 8-12 problems in a contest, generally of varying difficulty, from the very easy, to the very hard ones. Most teams (that knows how to write simple programs) should be more than capable of solving at least one problem within the time limits, while all teams should also find at least some of the problems challenging.

When and where?

  • April 16th, 2016 (attendance 10:00, start 11:00)
  • 3rd & 4th floor, Høgskoleringen 3 (P15), NTNU - Gløshaugen, Trondheim, Norway
  • Deadline for registration: April 14nd, 18:00


We will be awarding prizes for the following categories (you need to be an all-student team to be elegible for any prize):

  • 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place on the Score Board
  • The best all-first-year student team
  • The best all-girl student team
  • Best student team name
  • + misc. other prizes we try to vary, such as "Shotgun Coding", "Better Safe than Sorry", "Average Joe" =)

PS: It's a more common occurence than you might think, that we don't get to hand out all of our prizes because contestants leave before we get to hand them out! So it's highly recommended to stay until the prizes have been awarded, no matter how well you felt it went during the contest!
