Softec 2008 @ Fast Lahore

Last month I had the privilege to represent my university (University of Karachi) at Softec 2008 in Speed Programming Competition. Well in my previous blogs I have written a lot about the programming competitions I have participated in, so it would be good to discuss some other aspects of the Mega Event.

Although the weather was hot but good arrangements made the overall experience a pleasure. Accommodation arrangements were good so were the ceremonies which were all started at time.

The main pitfall was the competition itself which lacked a lot of things. Mismanagement and late start were the main weak points in the programming competitions. Frequent power failures were also a big cause of hindrances.

The tasks in the programming competition were written by the organizers themselves so they were not so professional. Mostly in other programming competitions, tasks are copied from likes of ACM as they are richer in test cases and possess almost zero error.

In the end I would say that it was a good and none the less We learned a lot from the event.

I am a web developer working @ Gaditek
