Our goals with CodeChef are to challenge and engage the developer community as well as provide a platform for competition and improvement. We’ve heard from many people that when they get a wrong answer or time limit exceeded they aren’t sure how to debug their submissions. We are working on a few ways to improve this:
For our April Contest, we will also be experimenting with another major change. After the contest is over we will make all code submissions for problems within that contest, publicly available. Eventually we plan to allow comments on individual submissions as well. We hope this will allow less experienced developers to learn from their peers and generally promote knowledge sharing. We look forward to hearing your feedback on these initiatives.
