Introduction to Progfest

Progfest is an annual CalState LA Programming Challenge that offers high school and community college students an opportunity to solve college-level and real-world programming problems by applying the principles of computer science. We believe today's high school and college students have great potential, and we hope being a part of progfest will help them in their future studies of computer science and software engineering. Admission is free, and lunch will be provided to all participants.

The Challenge

This year's ProgFest will be different from prior years. It consists of data structure and algorithm exercises within Android applications. The first part of the day will be a 2 hour hands-on workshop on creating very basic Android applications. The rest of the day will involve creating Android games that require the use of relatively sophisticated algorithms and data structures.
