On Wednesday May 18, 14 students from Forest Hill competed in the Don Mills Programming Contest. Despite the fact that all students were competing for the first time against students from across the GTA, results were great! Everyone completed at least one of the challenges and two groups finished in the top 12. Congratulations to all who participated and especially to teams Jacob Seiler and Josh Blatt who finished 12th and Dennis Qeska and Joey Tepperman who finished 11th!
The contest is organized by Don Mills Collegiate using the DMOJ (Don Mills Online Judge), a modern contest platform, judging system and archive of programming problems developed by students at Don Mills CI.
This week at FHCI…
