IEEEXtreme is a global challenge in which teams of IEEE Student members compete in a 24-hour time span against each other to solve a set of programming problems that can be answered in any of the supported languages (C, C++, C#, Java, Python, Ruby, Perl, and PHP). The competition includes questions from various difficulties, from novice to expert levels. All teams receive the same problems and are expected to solve them without outside consultation. Points are awarded based on how the problem was solved and the time it took.
