Industry team wins coding prize

John Kavanagh
IT industry teams have taken first and third places in this year's BCS programming competition.

The competition was won by a team from electronic design automation specialist Zuken and computer games developer Codemasters. One of three teams from London University's Imperial College was second, and computer games specialist Creative Assembly came third.

Teams of up to five people worked to solve programming problems against the clock. The winners completed five problems and the runners-up four. Four teams completed three problems and six teams finished two.

Last year's winner, Cambridge University's Trinity College - which provided the winning team in 2000 and the runner-up in 2001 - came last out of the 13 finalists.
