Computer Programming

Categories:  Puzzle Games

When the MSO was founded it was not quite sure how many mental disciplines it wanted to include and computer programming was included as an event. Many people would not find this very enjoyable or necessarily much of an accomplishment. So unsurprisingly the event was only set the once!


Computer programming will involve writing code to solve a task. Marks are given for speed and efficency, user interface and code reusability and style. In the event that two programmers are equalon points then time will be used as a tie-break.

You can find out about opportunities to play Computer Programming live at the timetable. Please report any external links that have broken or have changed to contain inappropriate material. More information about how tournament play works can be found in clocks and in MSO rules.
