For over a year now, we at Codechef have been setting up complex coding problems and trying to find the best programmers to solve them. We are often asked why we do this. Why do we make people rack their brains just to solve these hypothetical problems? Have you ever considered the thought that these problems might not just be hypothetical?
Until now, we told you that we were just trying to promote awareness about algorithms and the like in India. However, due to recent security clearances granted by the Indian Space Programme, we can now be more honest about our motives.
You may be wondering why we’re telling you all of this. Well, here’s the answer: This is the final Codechef Contest. All of the problems from this month’s set are related to specific issues that the Chandrayan Space Team is working on to finalize preparations for the rocket launch.
We are sorry if we had misled you in past, but we did it for India. Now, the country needs your help. We ask that you spend some extra time to help the lunar mission by submitting some super fast code!! (we prefer C/C++ to someOtherLanguage)
