Russian programmers are the best

I am so excited I had to share the news with everyone.

Are you familiar with ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest sponsored by IBM? It is a multi-tiered programming competition held annually.

This year, the first, fourth, seventh, eighth and tenth place winners were from Russian universities.

I was especially thrilled that one of the winner was from Ural Federal University, which is quite near to me and the top winner is from St. Petersburg State University. This is the fourth year in a row that a team from St. Petersburg has taken top honors in the competition.

I wrote about talent shortage 3 month ago.  It looks like we don’t have any difficulties to find good software engineers in Russia.
