Closing Ceremonies

Hey Jammers,

Thank you to everybody who participated in CodeJam this year! We hope you enjoyed the presentations and delish meals. A big thank you to our sponsors for making CodeJam happen as well!

The Problem Formulation Team has met and after a long day of judging and evaluating the solutions, they have finally decided the winners! Closing ceremonies will be sometime on Monday, November 25th — NOT this Friday. The time is still TBA but save the date! Also, don’t forget to bring your green meal ticket as it will be used as your raffle ticket for the Surface tablet, so hold onto that!

See you all Monday!

We had previously told you that submission was at 5PM tonight, but it was a mistake. SUBMISSIONS ARE OFFICIALLY DUE AT 8PM TONIGHT!!!!!

Please familiarize yourself on how to use Open Shift to submit your final solution!

We will not be accepting submissions in other ways. If you are still having issues with Open Shift, the Problem Formulation Team will be able to clarify any problems you are having. To come in contact with them, email:

Prior to submitting your solution, you must fill out a submission form. These can be picked up in the ECSESS lounge in Trottier 1060. THIS SHOULD BE HANDED IN BY 8PM TO A CODEJAM COMMITTEE MEMBER!

Lunch will be served at 1pm in the Trottier lobby. Good luck to all!

1. The problem states 12 hour prediction but it is actually 16 hours. Hopefully that does not affect what you have designed.

2. The PDF version of using the pulse API is attached here alongside the ZIP file for the problem.

3. Snackage chips, bagels and leftover food from lunch is available at Trottier 1060. We’ll be here so come get sustenance if you need it. No more coffee though, sorry.

4. KEEP THAT GREEN TICKET SAFE. Like Frodo guarding the one ring. The number on that ticket will be your raffle number for a chance to win one of our raffle prizes. This ticket must be kept safe till NEXT FRIDAY, which is when the closing ceremonies will be held at *save the dateee!*

5. Video of opening ceremony is out and can be found here:

6. Dinner is at 6pm today. PIZZAA!

Now the moment you’ve all been waiting for: the problem for this year! The documents and descriptions can be found at this link.

Good luck to all and may the odds be ever in your favor!
