ProgFest is an annual Cal State Los Angeles programming competition aimed at high school and community college students whose goal is to encourage their interest in computer science by challenging them to solve college-level and real-world programming problems. It is one of the College of ECST’s biggest annual events and a major focus for CSULA ACM and CSULA Computer Science students.
We are looking to make the 2012 ProgFest to be as great as ever, and to that goal, the board of ACM is looking to establish a ProgFest Team. The team will be involved in all areas of ProgFest from preparation to production such as: outreach to local schools, writing the problem set, judging, etc… The ProgFest Team needs dedicated members who are the most proactive and dedicated students in the college of ECST to join. All active and dedicated team members will receive an incentive to be determined after the successful conclusion of ProgFest.
ProgFest happens in February, so the team needs to get active as quickly as possible. If you’re a true go-getter and want to make it known, come to our meeting
Wednesday, November 2nd at 3:20pm in ECST A309.
NOTE: This meeting has been postponed until Wednesday, November 9th at 3:20pm. We apologize for the short notice.
The 2011 Southern California ICPC is upon us, and we need teams to represent Computer Science at Cal State Los Angeles! Ready to program competitively and show off your knowledge? Then sign up now, because time is short! The deadline is October 28, 2011. Teams are groups of 3 CS undergraduates (if you are a graduate student, exceptions may apply). If you’re interested, please let us know (leave a comment below or contact one of the ACM officers).
The competition takes place Saturday, November 12th, 2011 at Riverside Community College. Transportation costs will be provided. More information at: http://socalcontest.org/.
This Saturday, October 22nd, is Boeing Day at the College of ECST from 9am to 1pm. Boeing Day is outreach opportunity aimed at future students to encourage them to study at the CSULA College of ECST. ACM, along with the other student ECST organizations will have tables set up to talk to all the pre-university students who will be visiting the college that day. We would like to encourage you to come by, help out and talk to some younger students and give them some insight into Computer Science as a potential field of study and career. In addition, the CS Department will be showcasing its new game lab, and we could also use some volunteers to help run it. So, if you’re interested in helping out, please drop us a line, or just stop on by.
