Submitting your code

Hello everyone,

We’re in the home stretch! The competition ends in just over 4 hours, t 8PM tonight. You can bring your USB key to the ECSESS lounge any time between 5 and 8PM, but make sure you have everything ready first!

First and foremost, get your code working on a virtual machine! I suggest you use Ubuntu Server Edition as your OS. Put the virtual machine’s VDI file on the USB key.

Include a README file on your USB key. Be sure to include the names of each person in the team. More importantly, you should provide very detailed instructions on how to execute your code. If we can’t run your code for whatever reason, you will be disqualified.

Lastly, write your team name on the USB key’s label and give it to whichever ECSESS council member is in the lounge.

I hope you all had an awesome week-end, I will see you all next Friday at 7PM in Trottier-0100 to announce the winners! We’ll also be giving out participation prizes, so be sure to attend!

Hello everyone,

There’s a small typo in the JSON data example given in the spec. If you copy/paste the data directly, you’ll encounter errors. The line ending in “Manager 1 should end with a comma

Happy coding!

Use your time effectively!

Hello everyone, this is just a reminder that different elements of the problem are weighted differently in the judges’ grading scheme. I’ve seen plenty of people asking questions about scheduling, even though their trading algorithms haven’t been implemented.

Above all, make sure your trading algorithms are working. That’s where the big marks are :P
