13th place Mathematika ’08
February 5, 2008
So we made 13th place on the Mathematika programming contest! After an initial delay of 1.5 hours, Sjoerd Visscher, Martijn van Steenbergen and I, under the name ‘X42′, finally got started at 11:30 am and programmed until the early evening. Martijn and I had a hard time, getting our butts kicked by some serious math puzzles but Sjoerd, having a more mathematical background, made the day. Of a total of 13 problems we solved 11, 10 of which where due to Sjoerd!
