Three weeks ago we had our final training camp before selecting the South African team for the International Olympiad in Informatics. We experimented with extending it by a day to allow for more presentations and have group problem tackling sessions, which worked out really well.
Shortly after the camp we had a meeting to select the team. The team for this year's International Olympiad in Informatics in Egypt is:
- Haroon Moolla
- Mark Danoher
- Saadiq Moolla
- Schalk-Willem Krüger
The IOI this year takes place in Cairo from 16-23 August. I will be attending as deputy team leader along with the team leader Peter Waker.
The second round of the SACO takes place at schools across the country in just 5 days (30 May). If you're one of the contestants be sure to read this page I wrote for information on how to prepare.
