Upcoming Contests:

We will be having a team based contest on 24th of January with the 8 problems from the Snackdown final. It will be a 5 hour contest that starts at 21:30 Indian Standard Time. Since CodeChef users (our snackdown finalists) have already had a chance to see these problems, we will not be having prizes for this contest. You will be able to register for the contest here, and the contest will be available at: http://www.codechef.com/SNONLINE/.

As always, we would love to hear your suggestions and feedback to help make this site better. If there’s anything you would like us to know, do drop in an email to feedback@codechef.com .

Cheers,
Basil

  1. congrats!It is becoming increasingly harder to compete globally now :-)Btw, nice contest! Other than the strict time limit for one of them, the problems were pretty good. It was really fun to code up delauney triangulation from scratch…

  3. I have a feedback about the duration of the contest. I think 15 days is too long for the monthly contest. 7 days would be an ideal time :).Other than that, problems were very good this time, including the tie breaker :).
