Start Story

In early October, Jacob Buckheit, Craig Schwerin, and Austin Farrugia began working to create a bigger and better Naples Florida Programming Competition. Next

After countless hours of planning, the programming competition started to come together. Next

With the help of Community School of Naples, AgingCare.com, the Collier County Public School System, and the Southwest Florida Regional Technology Partnership, the competition gained traction and was planned for April 23rd, 2016. Next

Jacob began work redeveloping the website for the competition and the system which would be used on the day of the competition. Next

Craig Schwerin and Austin Farrugia began designing challenging problems for teams to solve during the competition. Next

April 23rd came quickly! Next

The competitors started to get excited as we neared 8:45! Next

32 Students from 6 schools across the county on 16 teams worked alone or with partners in order to solve as many problems as possible through three rounds of programming. Next



Teams struggled through hard and easy problems throughout the day. Next

After the competition wrapped up, the judges calculated scores. Next

Nico Basile and Gabe Kralik on team "Baslisk" from Community School of Naples took third place overall. The third place prize was a $25 Visa gift card for each member of the team. Next
