Re: ACF Nationals 2019 discussion: Question Content

I'll also chime in my support for the Rust tossup. The early(?)-mid clues we heard seemed to be discussing its desirable memory safety properties, which was enough context to make a semi-confident buzz.

Re: 2019 ACF Regionals Thanks and General Discussion

I thought the CS in this set was much better than what I’ve seen in recent sets. I appreciated the focus on important concepts and people rather than on, e.g., various uses of [certain keyboard characters] in a few programming languages. The latter kind of question feels like a vocab quiz in that it...

Re: 2016 WHAQ Question-Specific Discussion

Tossup 11: The first sentence isn't quite accurate; e provides the value of x, not the "largest value of x to the power of 1 over x". Perhaps reword as "...which asks for the value of x which maximizes x to the power of 1 over x". I will say this is a good example of breaking the traditional QB max...

Re: Open Summer Practices at the University of Delaware

Hey Joe, How will practices be set up? Will it be broken up by players' skills/level, tournament-style team play, regular team play (like HS practice) or solo play? And I was also wondering what kinds of sets you'll be running (HS, College, etc.)? Sounds like an awesome opportunity to not get rusty!...
