What's this?

This is the blog of a team that competes in the annual ICFP programming contest

Lightning round

ICFP 2009Posted by Dan Gerhardsson Sat, June 27, 2009 19:58:17
The submissions for the lightning round are due. We didn't manage to get everything in place for the Greet and Meet problems and ended up with 258 points. Now the real competition starts...

First score

ICFP 2009Posted by Dan Gerhardsson Sat, June 27, 2009 18:18:07
Scored 67 points on scenario 1001. Lightning round doesn't look too good with less than two hours to the deadline.

Optimization?

ICFP 2009Posted by Pär Bohrarper Sat, June 27, 2009 11:27:09
Looking into some options for numeric optimization, scipy.optimize and Openopt.

Other stuff: helper class for creating submissions is done.

Day 2

With the VM up and running it's time to get the visualization ready and start working on the controller programs. It would be nice to have something ready for the lightning round.

VM is running now

We've got the VM working correctly (?) now. Turns out that there was an error in the task spec...

Go for launch!

The task consist of writing control software for satellites. The software controls the satellite by reading sensor data and writing actuator data.

This is our initial plan:

* Implement the VM in C, with a ctypes interface to Python
* Implement an execution environment in wxPython, where the scenario can be visualized.

Waiting..

We're just waiting now. Hoping for an exciting competition, hopefully with online score board. Wonder what "16" is all about?
