## Intro

The 2013 Progsoc Open Hackathon will be a friendly and fun competition held for everyone. Individuals and teams will work to solve a set problems ranging from easy problems to more difficult problems.

Prizes will be awarded for every question solved!

## Details

The competition will be held on:

TBA

The location is:

TBA

Competition programming languages:

Both the algorithm and the output of your code will be assessed for correctness. It will be manually marked.

## Registration

Individuals and teams (of 2 or 3 people) will be able to register their teams online. An online form will be made available shortly.

### Who Can Enter

• Current UTS students
• Students from ALL faculties are welcome

## Prizes

Prizes will be awarded for each problem solved. Both individuals and teams will receive 1 prize per question solved. Different prizes will be awarded based on the difficulty of the problem.

• Easy problem: TBA
• Medium problem: TBA
• Difficult problem: TBA

## Rules

1. Entrants will have a total of 3 hours to solve as many problems as they choose.
2. Entrants are free to enter the competition at any time, and to leave the competition at any time.
3. Solutions must not be obfuscated, and should clearly show the algorithm used to solve the problem.
4. The judges' decision is final.

## Example Problems

To cater for a variety of ability levels, there will be 3 different difficulty levels:

### Easy Problems

These will be set at the level of Project Euler problems.

Example: Write a program that adds all the natural numbers (i.e. positive integers) below one thousand that are multiples of 3 or 5.

For more easy practice problems: Euler Problem Set

TBA

### Difficult Problems

These will be set at the level of ACM ICPC Regional Competition Problems. A few examples:
