Several Valencia students recently competed in the Ninth Annual Florida Intercollegiate Programming Competition, which took place on Saturday, April 22, 2017.

A total of 88 contestants from seven institutions competed at their home colleges, connecting with opposing teams via Google Hangouts. From their respective locations, contestants simultaneously solved the same computer programming problems and submitted them to the judges through a Web interface.

Valencia once again earned the Team Trophy, which is awarded to the college that has the highest number of problems solved by their top three programmers. Students Brad Glaser and Ricky Lagow earned an individual first and third place respectively, as well as a cash award.

The Valencia team was coached by Professors of Computer Programming and Analysis Mahendra Gossai and Colin Archibald.

Valencia is delighted to have the team trophy returned from Seminole State College, where it has been residing this past year, and we look forward to future wins from our programming students.
