What is IEEExtreme?
IEEEXtreme is a global challenge in which teams of IEEE Student members—advised and proctored by an IEEE member, and often supported by an IEEE Student Branch—compete in a 24-hour time span against each other to solve a set of programming problems.
I have participated in the 11th IEEEXtreme and it was my second competition. The AUKIEEESB club has hosted this event for AUK students in mid-October 2017 in one of the AUK Engineering Lab. There were only 2 teams participating in this competition from Kuwait. My team was called SyndicateAUK and we, Abdulaziz Karam, Ali Kelkawi, and Ahmed Hassan, had scored was 445.3 and we have ranked the 590th out of 3350 on all regions and 210th out of 973 on Africa, Europe, and the Middle East. It was another great experience and a good practice for the next competition, I have learned how to work with different people and how to not give up with hard questions.
