A few weeks ago, the Chef came to a realization: he needs to go on a diet. If you’ve seen him lately, you’ll know he’s practically bursting out of his clothes. So, in an effort to stop overloading on the code he loves to devour, he’s decided to start consuming only the highest quality code.
Only the top two finishers in India and internationally will be eligible for prizes.
We have a few reasons for making this change. For a while, our community has been telling us that CodeChef’s prize structure could do more to encourage people to do their best. We agree. With this new prize structure, we think there’s more incentive for people to put forth their best effort.
*Edit* Additionally, we will be re-allocating the saved resources to other project in the pipeline in the CodeChef Community. *Edit*
Prizes on CodeChef will now be as follows:
First Place Indian: 12000 INR- Second Place Indian: 8000 INR- First Place International Contestant: $400- Second Place International Contestant: $300
As always, please let us know what you think about this new structure. Your feedback is extremely valuable to us and helps us make CodeChef better.
Now get to cuttin the flab off your code!
