I am back in Waterloo with good news to report. Both of the Woburn PEG teams won first place in this year’s American Computer Science League finals. This happened once before, in 2002, when the finals took place in Montréal. Although I was never in first place when I actually was on the team (1998-2000), it is pretty sweet to have coached some of those winning teams (plus in my cumulative seven ACSL finals trips I have probably got about 100 IHOP pancakes in my system due to the trips).
This week, closer to home, three students from Woburn are visiting Waterloo for the second stage of the Canadian Computing Competition. Out of about 20 students, four are selected to represent Canada at the International Olympiad in Informatics.
I have a few pictures from the ACSL trip in Houston to post, but since flickr is “getting a massage” right now they will have to wait.
