Blog of an ACM ICPC Codemonkey - Contest Day 2 - IBM TechTrek + Activity

Posted by glasnt on April 8, 2008
We had a 2.5 hour presentation from some of the best minds in the IBM business. There was a representative form Extreme Blue and other such projects. Then, the real fun (not that listening to business talks isn't fun). Columbian Icefields. It was really really pretty, but really really cold. I ended up trying to swim in the snow up to the glacier, but failed. There is video. I will not be releasing this to the public :P

But yeah, seeing the rockies and standing on a glacier was cold but magical.

Tomorrow is the practice runs of the contest. We all need to be decked out in our team t-shirts and such. Then in the afternoon, a short activity - the Banff Hot Springs. Twill be interesting. Sub zero temperatures in togs. Mentos Ice anyone? >_>
