Six years ago ACES Coders was started as a practice event to train Computer Engineering students at Peradeniya to take part in similar online programming competitions such as IEEEXtreme and ACM ICPC (International Collegiate Programming Contest). With the increase of popularity it has become the most popular coding competition among undergraduates in Sri Lanka. Last year it was done with a massive success with a participation of 300 undergraduates.
The event lasts for twelve hours and the students from several higher educational institutes all over the island will take part in the coding competition that gives multiple problems to solve by using the knowledge of programming. It will be a limited time, rapid coding competition that would improve the efficiency and accuracy of the participants.
From the last year, an additional part is added to this program targeting school Advanced Level students of Mathematical and IT streams to give knowledge about hardware and software to the school community.
We have already sent the registration forms to the respective universities. Please contact your department heads and send us your registrations through the heads. For any concerns on this matter, contact aces.
The ACES Coders v6.0 Sri Lanka's Biggest programming competition, took place on 25th July 2016 with the participance of 300 coders and recognized some of the Sri Lanka's top up-and-coming programmers from almost all universities and institutions.
