Number of participants: 11
IEEEXtreme is a global challenge in which teams of IEEE Student members—advised and proctored by an IEEE member, and often supported by an IEEE Student Branch—compete in a 24-hour time span against each other to solve a set of programming problems. This year, although with a national event at Coimbra, Porto kept the tradition alive with 4 teams competing locally. As usual, in Porto, there were fresh subs for lunch, pizza and lots of coffee which in the end resulted in the 1st and 2nd places being teams from and competing in Porto.
Between the teams competing in Porto, there were 6 new IEEE members, 2 of which were 1st year electrical engineering students and 2 informatics engineering 2nd year students.
