March Cook OFF annoucement

Hello everyone!

I’d like you to invite for CodeChef March Cook-Off that will start at 21:30 IST of 19-th March 2017 (check your time zone here) and will last 2.5 hours.

I am the author of problems and editorials, while Errichto is the tester. There are also some other people who helped with translations and miscellaneous issues who I will fill in later.

There is no registration required, anybody with a CodeChef handle can participate. Top participants can win CodeChef laddus (details on the contest page).

You will be provided 5 problems. There’s one problem that shows a style of problems I would like to see more in competitions. Let me know what your thoughts are after the contest.

Hope to see you all on the leaderboard!

Bump, this is happening in about an hour and a half!

huh…so you do like probability questions…!

Not particularly clear to me, but I think he is referring to either that “interactive” problem or the other type of problem (where we have to flush files. Cant remember name atm.)

You’ll see during the contest. I can talk about it what specifically I mean about it after the contest.


Oooooh. Interesting. I think I am getting some idea on what to expect :wink:

very excited,if someone not able to solve 1 but he tried then he will recieve 1000 laddus after one year?

Partially correct problems count.

yes, only correct or partially correct otherwise people will use a mobile to submit a code which doesn’t even compile :stuck_out_tongue:

Don’t think about if you are not able to solve even 1 problem. You surely will be able to and a person who doesn’t know cp also is able to solve that problem as the first problem is made so.

haha,im not talking abt myself,with god grace i can solve upto 3

check out above comment- “if someone”

Don’t be over-confident as well though. Problems start getting tougher from problem 2 and requires topics like DP and graphs.
