2019 SJSU competitive programming team

we sent 4 teams to the 2019 ICPC programming competition. it was our first year participating in a long time! we participated in the pacific northwest region division 2. (the hardest region in north america!) we started practicing in september 2019 three times a week for one hour. we had three 5 hour practice contests on saturdays. here are the teams:

Jerry Lee, Junior, Computer Engineering - 
I like coming up with creative ways to solve problems, even when it doesn't work and becomes a meme later. Some other major-related activities that I am a part of are the intelligent automation systems for robotics and the SJ2 firmware development team. I am most interested in the fields of AI/machine learning and full stack web development (especially with MERN).
