The CodeChef Book Giveaway

1 min read

We are constantly thinking about ways how to help people become better programmers.  We recently launched the CodeChef Wiki so that people can share tips, resources and tutorials.  Unfortunately, it seems people have been a little shy about contributing.  To get the ball rolling, we will be giving away books to the top wiki contributors this month.

All you have to do is use the wiki as a place to note all the things you love about programming – resources, tips, tutorials, etc.  At the end of October the top three contributors to the tutorials will each receive a set of The Art of Computer Programming (Volume I, II and III) and the other contributors will receive CodeChef T-shirts and laptop stickers.

How can you contribute to the wiki?

Rules:

  • The giveaway is open until 31st October 15th November and is open to everyone (regardless of geography).
  • The top contributors will be decided by the CodeChef team and announced on 3rd 20th November.
  • Making modifications for the sake of increasing your chance of winning will not do you any good. 🙂
  • As per our wiki guidelines, you can only edit the wiki if you’ve solved at least one contest problem.

If you have any questions, drop us a comment, email or tweet.

  1. I have been keeping an eye on the wiki ever since it was implemented, and there hasn't been (and still isn't) any way of editing it whatsoever (despite solving a contest problem) – I presumed you didn't want people editing it until later. So I presume that's why nobody has done anything 😉

  2. Can you add a small comments section in the wiki pages? So that people who may have queries, can ask them there?

    @Stephen, I just read your tutorial on 'Kayaks'. Thats just super!

  3. First give us the books, then we can read them and write the tutorials :p . . hehe,,
    Hmm.. I think a more monetary incentive and preferring top rated members to write these is one way to get good output. Any way, will try to contribute some stuff in last 3-4 days after my mid-sem exams 🙂 and it will be good not to have any deadlines for these kind of work.

  4. Ugg Australia has recruited designers like Manolo Blahnik, Carlos Falchi, Rebecca Minkoff, Rafe pictured,and more to design high-end versions of the brand's trademark boots for its seventh annual Art & Sole auction.

    I have to assume these will be filed under unaffordable (which is good – more money for St. Jude!), but I'll still be going to the pickyouruggs.com Web site on December 1 to window shop and see what these designers have cooked up.

    I am trying to picture what I would do to make these high end… Real Italian leather? A pearl brooch? Other expensive ingredients and sparkles? Maybe the differences won't be that extreme, but I hope each designer puts his personal touch on the shoe. I'm certain at the very least you'll be able to pick out which Uggs came from Betsey Johnson (UGG Classic tall 5815 boots, please!).

    The event is likely to inspire as many interesting Ugg knockoffs as there are regular Ugg knockoffs, so it is possible we'll see something like this around town next year. It's not only a great event for charity but probably also a good move to keep Uggs alive and relevant… especially with the number of people who'd like to see them disappear for good!UGG boots on sale!

    I will of course keep wearing my Uggs because A) I have them and B) they are warm, but if your kid asks Santa for Where the Wild Things Are <a
