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. The competition is organised annually and participated by 1500-1700 groups.
