# 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 a basic programming competition. It consists of data structure and algorithm exercises.

- All exercises will be done in Java or C++
- Knowledge of basic text Java IO would also be helpful
