David Martin Cuajunco, 4 BSM AMF

placed 8th out of 64 in the Association of Computing Machinery International Collegiate Programming Contest (ACM ICPC) Regionals held in Jakarta, Indonesia on Sunday, 6 November 2016. Fuchsia Moth bested teams from the National University of Singapore, the University of Tsukuba, Universitas Indonesia, and many others.  The Ateneo as a university placed 6th among all universities participating in this regional contest.

The ACM ICPC is regarded as the Olympics of programming. Teams of three are given 10 or more problems to solve in five hours. The team that completes the most number of problems in the least amount of time wins.  Teams from all over the world compete at the regional level for a berth at the prestigious world finals. The Ateneo has competed at the world finals three times, with Fuchsia Moth representing us last year.
