The International Olympiad in Informatics (I.O.I.) is an international computer programming competition held every year and attended by more than sixty countries. The location of the event changes from year to year and was held in Wisconsin, USA in August 2003 and in Athens, Greece in Sept 2004. Poland hosted the IOI in 2005. Ireland has participated in the IOI each year since 1994 but the competition began back in 1989. Participants must be below 20 years of age in July and are still in secondary school. This includes Leaving Cert students.
The IOI runs over the course of a week and includes two 'competition days'. On these days, each competitor is assigned a computer and is given five hours to solve three computer programming tasks. Either 'C', 'C++' or 'Pascal' may be used as a programming language to solve the tasks.
The IOI is an individual competition, in that each competitor competes independently but countries are allowed to send teams of up to four people, each of whom will receive their own individual scores.
An All Ireland programming contest takes place in Dublin City University (DCU) on a Saturday in December or January each year. The top students are awarded a trophy and medals. They form a panel with the other top young programmers and the 4-member Irish IOI team is chosen in early Summer.
For beginners to programming, there are a number of links (on the left hand side of this webpage) to tutorials on programming.
For those who can write code, there are a number of links (on the left hand side of this webpage) to some programming problems to test your abilities.
