this question is not about an algorithmic problem or something like that, but rather about an aspect of the programming contests which are presented here.
Is there a jury (that means, a group of human beings) who compare the contributions of the different teams, and decide “manually” which team is the winner? Or, is there a kind of backend server, which compiles and evaluates the contributions “automatically”? What I mean is, that this server would be able to check the contributed programs and decide, which program is the best of all and wins.
If it was like that, could somebody of the programmers of codechef.com please tell me, which kind of technology you use to communicate between your main (frontend) server and the backend, which compiles the contributed programs? That information could be very useful to me, because I’m about to develop a platform for programming contests as well, but the contributed programs should be evaluated automatically and not by a human being (because it’s fair against all participants).
Thanks and greetings from Germany
