Hello CSSS Members,
We hope you’ve been doing well this semester. A quick reminder that submissions for our Bounty Board coding contest will be due in two weeks on Monday June 29th. 
You can submit your application in the form of a github repo using the link: http://websurvey.sfu.ca/survey/376770408
Here’s a brief summary of submission rules.
•  Participants are restricted to students of Simon Fraser University. SFU emails/student IDs of all team members will be requested on the project submission form.
•  Participants are expected to follow SFU’s Academic Honesty Policy (in other words, don’t plagiarize)
•  Teams of up to 5 people are allowed. Assistance from parties outside of your team are allowed, but should not make up a sizable contribution to the project.
•  Students will be required to provide the names, SFU IDs, and other important information of team members when submitting the project for judging. No prior signup is required.
•  The CSSS reserves the right to disqualify any entries that are suspected of violating, or attempting to circumvent the rules written above.

Please make sure your team only submits once for the entire team.
We would also appreciate it if you gave us feedback, so we can make our events even better.

Hello CSSS Members,

The SFU Computing Science Society is proud to present our first ever entry on the CSSS Bounty Board! Here’s what you’ll need to know:
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Name: SFU Interactive Map
Deadline: June 29th
Greetings Developers.
In order to help students learn more about our expansive campus, we are requesting that your team develop an interactive map of the Simon Fraser University Burnaby Campus. This map should clearly identify all the notable buildings on the campus (MBC, West Mall Center, ASB etc.) The users of this application will be students and faculty of the university who would appreciate the help finding classrooms and other important locations on the campus. You may design this application in any way you wish. Additional features are appreciated, and entirely up to your discretion. Here are some examples:
GPS functionality
Room Finder
Pinning Locations for future reference
Additional Details for notable locations such as Images Theatre, or the Library
Additional maps for Surrey and Vancouver Campus

You may use any programming language that you wish. The final application must be runnable on at least one of: Windows, MacOS, Android, iOS.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The submissions will be judged on overall functionality, polish, ease of use, and all-around style. Submissions will be in the form of a github link to the project repository. You are encouraged to make use of the ample time you’re given to implement as many features as you can, and to ensure that the final result is as polished as possible. We’d prefer that you not ask about what kind of things are good to implement or how to implement them, as there is no single correct answer. Rather, it’d be best if you experiment and see for yourself what works. Inquiries regarding the rules of the contest, however are allowed. We would like to reiterate that this project should not take away from time that should be put towards schoolwork.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Details:
 The SFU Computing Science Student Society will hold the *Bounty Board* coding contest from May 18th to June 29th. The requirements of what you will be coding will be posted at the start of the event. A second contest may be held in the future if there is enough interest.
 Participants are restricted to students of Simon Fraser University. SFU emails/student IDs of all team members will be requested on the project submission form.
 
Participants are expected to follow SFU’s Academic Honesty Policy (in other words, don’t plagiarize)
 Teams of up to 5 people are allowed. Assistance from parties outside of your team are allowed, but should not make up a sizable contribution to the project.
 Projects will be submitted as a link to the project's github repository. Use of github will be required for the contest. The submission of projects will be opened two weeks before the deadline.
 Students will be required to provide the names, SFU IDs, and other important information of team members when submitting the project for judging. No prior signup is required.
 The CSSS reserves the right to disqualify any entries that are suspected of violating the rules written above.

Prizes:

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We welcome you to join our community at discord.gg/sfucsss where we will be posting most of the future information regarding the contest, as well as any other content from the SFU Computing Science Student Society. You can also meet hundreds of other students who are also studying Computer Science. For any further questions, please emailcsss-doe@sfu.ca and put [CSSS Bounty Board] in the subject title, or message @Director Of Events on our discord server.
