Happy New Year! By you're probably need deep in preparations for the World Finals. Following the ACM-ICPC web site, the roster of finalists is just about complete.
Hopefully, those of you who didn't make the World Finals round will hit the Regionals again next year, if you're eligible.
For those of you who made it, CONGRATULATIONS. It's a tremendous accomplishment. Regionals round is meant to sift through and find the teams that work the best together combining skills, creativity and smarts.
We plan to have another podcast interview posted in the next couple weeks. So, stay tuned.
Looking ahead, IBM plans to, once again, reach out to schools of World Finalists to make sure each knows of your great achievement. Please help us spread the word.
