International Olympiad in Informatics 2014 - Medal Time

This year marked my third and final trip to IOI, and after a hairy finish in our national training camp, the AIPO, I was off to Taipei, Taiwan, to compete in the 26th International Olympiad in Informatics.

This year, our team was back to four, myself, Daniel Mulcahy, Áron Hoffman and Conor Griffin along with our leaders, Gary Conway and Ximo Planells, and after much training at the national camp held in DCU, we felt ready. Leaving Dublin in the afternoon, we arrived in Taipei after a stop in Dubai. Pretty tired and ready to get going, we waited for a while in the immigration queue, an over-eager immigration officer just dying to spend nearly half an hour trawling over each of our pretty European passports with a magnifying glass. On the bright side, he stamped them really neatly.
