I didn't take it last year (I didn't really know about it and neither did my school), but I hope to this year.

What language are you guys writing it in? I guess my preference would be Visual Basic as I use it for the majority of my programming. (I assume they are still allowing Visual Basic, right?) Or I could always go back to Turing... and I know C++ basics as well but I haven't used it very often.

Dan and I will be doing it in Java 8)

preaty much any programming language is allowed for stage 1 competition. Turing is not sujested because of it's limitations, but its simple syntax could be of an advantage for easier problems. Though last year a number of questions were simply not possible in Turing Confused

at the end - it's whatever language you're most comfortable with
