On September 18, we met in Berne to code and to have a BBQ.

Coding at the Grill-Contest 2016

On September 18, 2016 twenty of the participants of SOI 2016 got together with the organizing students and a few former participants in Bern for a fun afternoon.

We looked back on the past SOI year and celebrated our international medals (IOI gold, IOI silver, CEOI silver)! We started with a small fun contest where we discussed and solved the tasks from IOI in small teams. In the evening, we had a small barbecue together. Having fun solving the tasks and the exchange between the generations were at the focus.

At end of the contest dozens of little chocolate sticks were distributed as rewards and a few laptops are now decorated with the brand new SOI stickers. With that, we are well prepared for the start of the next year of SOI 2017 on October 1!
