Hey guys, it’s a new month and its time to put the spotlight on a brand new programmer on CodeChef.

Age: 15
Institute: gymnasium 56, Gomel
Userid: gennady.korotkevich

How/When did you start programming?
It happened several years ago. My parents are programmers, and I was interested in what they were doing. Soon they suggested me to try myself at programming. I tried and liked it 🙂

What do you do when you’re not programming?
The main things are doing sports and sometimes reading. I like many kinds of sports, and the favourite ones are table tennis and soccer.

What do you like most about CodeChef?
I’m not so long with CodeChef, but I like solving very hard and challenging problems even for a long period of time.

How many hours a day do you program?
It depends on many things, but in average that’s 3-4 hours I guess.

What is the secret to being a good programmer?
I don’t think there’s any secret. In my opinion, if you want to be successful in doing something, you should like the thing you do 🙂

What are your plans for the future?
Graduating my gymnasium and entering the university 🙂 Though I’m still not sure which one to enter.

  1. Poor performance at the IOI by Gennady. He got 1 less than the highest score on 2 questions!! What use are you if you can’t get the highest score on all questions, let alone perfect scores. This is your fifth attempt!

    Hope you improve on day 2.
