ACM/ICPC Programming Contest: Hefei, China

Yesterday I attended the ACM/ICPC Programming Competition in Hefei with Shao-Ting, Chengzu Zhou (Ricky), and Edgar Liu. Very impressive event. There were hundreds of Chinese students working in teams solving problem sets written in English while programming using NetBeans running on OpenSolaris. Absolutely outrageous. I had a ball. Loved every minute of it. Here are some shots:

Sun China is the technical sponsor for the regional China ACM events, which includes five live contests as well as a series of online pre-qualification sessions. In total, more than 15,000 Chinese students participate and touch OpenSolaris and NetBeans. That's very cool.

Hefei University of Technology

Yesterday Shao-Ting and I stopped by Hefei University of Technology to meet with some professors and students about starting an OpenSolaris User Group. We also met with Wei Liu, Sun's Campus Ambassador at at the university. Really great day hanging out with these guys. Shaoting and Wei talked about the OpenSolaris distribution, and I talked about some ideas to start a user group.
