Each year the Educational Computing Organization of Ontario (www.ecoo.org) sponsors a computer programming contest for any school board across the province who wishes to run one. The programming contest involves teams of fours students who try to solve four programming problems in three hours using one computer. The teams can use any programming language. This year the contest was held at Christ the King on March 27th, 2014 and teams from across the Board competed. This year Loyola was represented by four teams. One of our teams won first place! Congratulations to Mark Bruce, Ian Berlot-Attwell, Matthew Po and Luka Sitas! They will now move on to the regional contest in April at York University to compete against teams from across the greater Toronto area. Congratulations to all the teams for a great effort!
