Invitation to DeCode 2021 from Felicity Threads IIIT-H

Tired of writing AC solutions? We’ve got you covered! This contest turns the usual format on its head. You’ll be given problems and their buggy code submissions. Your job will be to figure out a test case where the buggy solution fails.

We are proud to invite you to DeCode 2021, as a part of Threads, Felicity IIIT Hyderabad! We have prizes for top three GLOBAL as well as top three INDIAN participants.

Date and Time: March 1st, 2100-2300 IST
Contest Link: CodeChef DGTC2021

You will have eight problems and two hours to solve them. The problems are a good mix for all difficulty levels, from grandmasters to pupil. We have some hard problems, and some very easy too, and everything in between.

The rules and prizes have been announced on the contest page.

There’s a good mix of logically enthralling bugs, and bugs that make you go “Dude just how? :O”, so you’ll have tons of entertainment throughout the contest.

Thanks to the setters: ltc_groverkss, awesome_amul, kjain1810, fangahawk, akcube, and myself for setting amazing problems. And thanks to the testers: destiny_son, aditya.verma, kanish_anand akshat_goyal, Zshan and freyam, for debugging our contest in beta stage (inception?!).

We’ll post an editorial after the contest is over. We hope you’ll enjoy it!
