Extreme programming by contest teams for discrete mathematics problems on example of genome assembly


Download presentation


A new type of extreme programming is proposed. When using this approach teams which take part in Association for Computing Machinery International Collegiate Programming Contest (http://cm.baylor.edu/welcome.icpc) are given a scientific problem from the discrete mathematics area. Contrary to the programming contests and trainings when about 10 problems are solved in 5 hours teams are solving only one problem.

Problem solving process is similar to the training process—it is based on meetings which occur two times per week and are similar to brainstorms (between meetings participants continue to solve problem, but work separately). Several teams consisting of 3 people each take part in each meeting. After meeting its results are discussed with “coaches” and clients (consultants).
