The IEEE-NB Section is proud to congratulate Stephen White, Evan Campbell, and Vardaan Malhotra, who achieved an outstanding result as team RedsCode in the recently held IEEExtreme programming competition. After a hard fought battle the winning team from UNB placed third in Canada (out of 21 teams) and 195th in the world (out of 2671 teams).

The IEEExtreme competition is an annual world-wide programming marathon that pits student members from around the world against each other to solve challenging programming problems within the same 24-hour window. UNB teams completed virtually this year on October 22-23, 2021 working from 9:00 PM Friday to 9:00 PM Saturday local time. Some of them are already planning for next year’s competition.

Thanks are extended to Brent Petersen who organized the event at UNB in his role as Student Branch Counselor. The IEEE-NB Section would also like to acknowledge those members who volunteered to supervise the competition in a number of 3-hour shifts spanning the duration of the event.
