About the Event
- Students write short computer programs to solve six problems that vary in difficulty. The competition does not test computer literacy or knowledge but is focused on problem solving through programming skills.
- There are two papers—Intermediate for students up to year 10, and Senior for students up to year 12. Each paper consists of six problems, and students submit the source code for their solutions online during the three-hour contest.
- The AIO suitable for an IT class that has learnt some computer programming, or enthusiastic students that have taught themselves. Students will need some programming experience. In particular they must be able to write code that can open, read and write to files; declare variables and arrays; use loops, conditional (if) statements and simple arithmetic operations. The allowed languages are C, C++, C#, Java, Pascal, PHP, and Python. Students only need to know one of these languages to compete. Those new to programming may find Python the easiest language to learn.
