Engineering Students from Thammasat Win 2 'Huawei ICT' Awards to Represent Thailand in Asia-Pacific Competition.
Thammasat students from the Faculty of Engineering won 2 awards at the Huawei ICT Competitions 2023-2024 and will represent the country in the Asia-Pacific competition in Indonesia.
Friday 12 January 2024
The SUDO team, with Thammasat Thongkamkaew, Supakrit Nithigatekul, and Thanaboon Jiwariyawet, 3rd-year students in the Computer Engineering program at the Faculty of Engineering, Thammasat University, achieved 2nd place in the Computing category of the Huawei ICT Competitions 2023-2024 on the utilization of openEuler and openGauss. As a result, they will represent Thailand in the regional competition held in Indonesia.
The competition is divided into three categories: 1) Cloud, focusing on the development and application of Cloud Technology to solve technical issues related to data management and storage through the internet, 2) Network, emphasizing skills and knowledge in building and managing computer networks for communication and data exchange, and 3) Computing, emphasizing skills in computation and the fundamental structure of computer systems to solve various problems and apply technology to problem-solving.
Task-Based and Preparation
In the Preliminary and National rounds, the team members answer the questions individually and the scores are later combined. As for the Regional round, there is a planned division of tasks, where the team answers questions and conducts labs together. Thammasat is responsible for the openEuler system and the Database operations, while Thanaboon oversees the openEuler system and problem-solving on Kunpeng at a fundamental level. Supakrit is responsible for the Database and developing applications for Kunpeng using C/C++ language.
The Utilization of openEuler and openGauss
The openEuler is an operating system developed based on the Linux CentOS technology. It aims to be a flexible and secure operating system that can be used effectively. Additionally, openEuler also integrates open control platforms and efficient development tools to assist in the creation and management of systems.
The openGauss system is a database system developed by Huawei that uses SQL database technology to support data storage and management. It has the ability to improve and enhance performance according to business needs. With high security, this system is reliable and can operate quickly.
Both openEuler and openGauss are projects that focus on developing open systems that can be continuously developed according to the needs of users and organizations. There are security and testing responses to ensure stability and efficiency in their operations.
The SUDO team: Strengths
All team members have experience in server configuration using the Linux OS, specifically the Redhat distribution. This has provided them with a basic understanding of Linux operations, which aligns with the content used in the Huawei competition. As a result, the team's server knowledge is relatively strong, and they have practical experience in its usage.
In addition, in the competition, the KAP team, consisting of 3rd-year Computer Engineering students from the Faculty of Engineering, has also achieved 4th place in the Cloud, Big data, and AI categories. The team members include Kittisak Suddan, Akapol Mueangham, and Pariwat Sawatchart.
The Huawei ICT Competitions 2023 - 2024 is a collaboration between Huawei, educational institutions, and universities nationwide, aimed at promoting and supporting learning in the field of Information and Communication Technology (ICT). The competition focuses on students and interns who are interested in this field, to prepare them for future careers in the industry. Award-winning students will have the opportunity to be selected for internships at Huawei Thailand.
