In this COVID-19 pandemic, behold the largest online programming competition in the country presented by Notre Dame Information Technology Club. We have brought to you a flagship programming contest which will be held annually from now on. In memory of Father Richard William Timm, presenting "Father Timm Memorial Programming Contest 1.0" to be held for the first time this October.
Father Timm (1923 – 2020) was one of the founding members of Notre Dame College, Dhaka, and our respected 6th principal. Father Timm not only helped Bangladesh by his writing and relief works at the time of the Liberation war but also was a lifelong friend of Bangladesh contributing to her development in whatever ways he could. Besides his social work, he had an excellent scholarly mind. As a biologist, he had done extensive research works in taxonomy and discovered over 250 species. Father Timm is also the founder of the debate and science club of Notre Dame College, the firsts in the country. Through this competition, we will remember him every year for his immense contributions to Science, Notre Dame College and Bangladesh.
