 
DalCode — Dalhousie Programming Contest 


Dalhousie Programming Contest for Highschool and Juniorhigh students (DalCode) is designed to provide a computer programming challenge for highschool and junior highschool students. The contest is open to students of younger age as well. In addition to be a contest for students who already learned programming in class or independently, it is an educational contest, aimed at helping any interested students to learn programming through a sequence of exercises of increasing difficulty. There is no cost to participate. The contest consists of two phases. In the first phase, some practice problems are posted online and the students submit solutions electronically. The solutions are judged, and the results sent to the participants. The second phase is an onsite competition, held at the Dalhousie University. DalCode 2020 onsite competition, planned for Saturday, Apr 18, 2020, is canceled due to COVID19.
