With immense pride, IEEE WIE Ottawa is happy to announce a great achievement of our webmaster, Ragunath Anbarasu, who has has been selected as a Section lead for IEEEXtreme 14.0. IEEEXtreme is an annual hackathon and competitive programming challenge in which teams of IEEE Student members, often supported by an IEEE Student Branch and proctored by an IEEE member, compete in 24 hours against each other to solve a set of programming problems.

Let’s take a glimpse of tasks Ragunath will take up as a Student Ambassador. In this event,  Ragunath will be reaching out to Colleges, Universities, IEEE Student Branches, and IEEE Student & Professional Members to take part in the IEEEXtreme Programming Competition. He will be coordinating with the organizers in hosting the IEEEXtreme Programming Competition in their respective student branches and supporting Non-IEEE Student Branch Members in finding a suitable venue for participation. He will be extending his help to students looking for support and guidance with information related to IEEEXtreme and connect them to a professional member.

This is an honoured moment where we have moved a step closer to connect to the students in the Ottawa region. It’s the moment of glory for the IEEE WIE Ottawa team, a great example where we see that our talented volunteers are always heading up and don’t miss any chance to add those feathers on their hats. #IEEEWIEOttawa
