A team of Jacobs School undergrads calling themselves "Team 'The Bagpipe Lubricators'" placed 16th overall (and 6th from United States) in a 24-hour online computer programming contest run by IEEE called IEEE Xtreme 3.0.
The official IEEE results page highlights how two Jacobs School computer programming teams finished in the top 25. The Bagpipe Lubricators finished 16th in the world, and Team XYZZY finished 19th in the world. 700 teams registered.
Jordan Ree is the caption of the Bagpipe Lubricators, and Elliot Slaughter is captain of XYZZY. I'll update this posting with the full names of both of these teams, when I get that info.
These two Jacobs School teams finished first and second in the region.
