There were 18 entries for the busy beaver contest.
2 were disqualified for syntax errors.
3 were disqualified for having infinite loops.
The top 5 entries were:
Yo-Seop Choi 544,884,220 steps
Elgiz Kenzin 8,823,945 steps
Samuel Merante 98 steps
Seyed Fazeli 90 steps
Kirusanth Thiruchelvam 81 steps
I awarded bonus points as follows:
> 1 million steps: 4 points
100-999,999 steps: 3 points
50-99 steps: 2 points
< 50 steps: 1 point
One entry was a team effort by 5 students; in that case I split the bonus 5 ways.
