Teams of IT professionals and students are being invited to pit their skills against each other by entering the annual BCS programming competition.

The competition is open to teams of between two and five people. They solve as many programming problems as possible against the clock.

Teams can use C, C++, Java, Visual Basic and Eclipse.

The champions will win Microsoft XBoxes and the engraved competition trophy.

In past years participants have praised the competition as a training event for industry teams, a chance for students to compete with IT professionals, and great fun, the BCS said.

The closing date for entries is 18 February. There are regional heats on 5 March and the final will take place on 16 April.

The competition, now in its 21st year, is sponsored by IBM.
