Three teams from UW CSE competed in the 2009 Pacific Northwest Region Intercollegiate Programming Contest held at the University of Oregon in Eugene on Saturday, November 7, competing in a region that stretches from southern California up to Canada and over to Hawaii. The contest was held at five different sites simultaneously, with twenty-two teams from Washington and Oregon competing at the UO site.
The CSE teams placed first, second, and third among the teams at the site, and had our best showing ever in the region. CSE teams placed fifth and sixth in the region out of 77 teams total. Those two teams placed above all the teams from Berkeley and Simon Fraser who are normally very tough competitors, beaten only by teams from UBC, Stanford, and the University of Victoria.
CSE teams were:
- Team Captcha (first at site, fifth in region): Jeff Booth, Michael Sloan, Will Johnson
- Firefighter Endorsed (second at site, sixth in region): Joshua Snyder, Kevin Wallace, Alyssa Harding
- Three Bytes Deficient (third at site, 23rd in region): Steven Howard, Conrad Meyer, Tyler Smith
