Students Vie for Prizes-and Glory-at Programming Contest

Fifty UC San Diego computer science students took part in the Fall 2012 UCSD Programming Contest Saturday, Oct. 13. They were vying for cash prizes, including $1,000 for first-place.
During a pizza-fueled five hours, contestants had to solve eight programming problems. Finally, Julaiti Alafate come out on top, by solving six of the eight. James Mouradian placed second, Deepak Arulkannan third, Josh Tobin fourth and Manoj Mardithaya fifth.
The prizes, food and drink were provided by the Dini Group, a La Jolla-based hardware and software engineering firm specializing in high performance digital circuit design and application development.
Graduate student coaches Whitney Maguffee, Mohammad Moghimi, Do-Kyum Kim and David Michon and Faculty Coach Michael Taylor, from the computer science department, ran the contest.
