Niko-Fete 2023

We are happy to invite you all to this years Niko-Fete, our traditional Christmas Party!

This party takes place on December 6th, starting at 10AM in our rooms (E1.3 R109). As opposed to our breakfasts, this time we offer, fitting to the christmas theme, hot mulled wine (also without alcohol), hot chocolate. Additionally we will have freshly baked waffles and Crêpes with various toppings available! Of course we will also have a variety of christmas-themed snacks for you!

Like all our events, the Niko-Fete is completely free for all our students. However, we would still appreciate a small donation that will go toward a good cause. In this year, all your donations will go to the Tafel Saarbrücken (Food bank) and the Kältebus Saabrücken (Shelter for homeless people)

We are very happy that itestra is sponsoring this event and will even be present at the event! If you are looking for a job, no matter whether it is during your studies or afterwards, consider checking our the website of itestra. Alternatively you can also get in touch with them directly as they will present during the Niko-Fete with two Software Engineers!

Advent of Code 2023 – FSR Leaderboard

Christmas season is upon us again, and as every year, some people are most looking forward to the curiosity of opening their advent calendar. And this year we have found another special calendar for you all: For the second year in a row, we present to you “Advent of Code”.

Advent of Code (AoC) is a digital advent calendar designed by computer scientists for computer scientists, and therefore contains small programming puzzles and challenges for you. Every day there is a two-part challenge, the solution of which can earn you up to two stars. You don’t need any prior knowledge of competitive programming or advanced algorithms and data structures to solve them. Best of all, you can use your favourite programming language. The puzzles are usually designed in such a way that you can quickly find the solution with logical-analytical thinking and a little puzzling. The puzzles are also part of a cute little story in which you can help Father Christmas to make Christmas really happen. In the end, AoC is not necessarily about solving all the puzzles – real fans just want to know the whole story.

But if you really want a challenge, then AoC has this up its sleeve for you: if you are particularly fast and one of the first 100 to solve the task of the day, you will receive points on the global leaderboard. The student council has also created a private leaderboard for you, where you can compete with all other SIC students. Rumour has it that professors are also on the board anonymously. It should be noted, however, that the puzzles for us are published at 06:00 in the morning – so if you want to climb to the top, you must be willing to get up early as well as being a good programmer.

We believe that Advent of Code is a great opportunity for all students to challenge themselves and expand their skillset through various problems. Therefore, there are no students at SIC who cannot benefit from it.

AoC starts on December 01st and ends December 25th. You can find more information on the AoC website:

To join the private FSR leaderboard, use our code 2253378-eb43346f on If you already participated last year, you are already part of the leaderboard and don’t need to do anything else.

Disclaimer: Advent of Code is not hosted or organised by the Student Council of Computer Science. We are just big fans of the concept and want to promote it at our faculty.
