I’d like you to invite for February Lunchtime that will start at 19:35 IST of 25-th February 2017 and will last 3 hours.
The contest starts 5 minutes later than usually to avoid a clash with a contest on another online platform (AtCoder Mujin Contest).
I am an author of problems and editorials, while niyaznigmatul is a tester.
I want to thank dpraveen (who is a contest admin) and suraj_sharma for their technical help.
Translators: xcwgf666 (Russian), huzecong (Mandarin) and VNOI team (Vietnamese). Language verification: arjunarul.
As usually, there is no registration required — anybody with a CodeChef handle can participate.
Top school participants can win CodeChef laddus (details on the contest page).
You will be provided 4 problems with subtasks (IOI-style grading), all featuring bear Limak. Ties are broken by time of reaching your final score. I honestly think that all problems are interesting and valuable — some for beginners and some for experiences competitors (IMO one particular problem is so new and beautiful). Remember about subtasks if you can’t solve a problem for the full score, and read the editorial after the contest.
I wish you great fun and no frustrating bugs. Hope to see a lot of you in the leaderboard!
Starting with this Lunchtime, every regular contest (Challenge, Cook-off and Lunchtime) will have its announcement in the forum.
Here you can give us your feedback about problems, express your feelings (brag about your victory for example) or just discuss the contest.
There still exist editorial topics though, so it’s better to ask a particular question about a problem there.
We hope you will like this idea.
