The August Challenge 2011 is over!
The August contest has got quite a few winners at the top this time. It seems the winners are trying to prove a point that they want to be Number 1 and will not accept the 2nd spot this month 😉 🙂 . Anyways back to some stats, the Global rank saw 7 participants tied at 1st place and in the Indian winners, 3 people tied at 1st place.
Overall a good contest, a fair bit of difficulty this month with only 2 problems being easily solved.
Before we move on to the next section of the blog post, a special mention of the people who made this contest possible:
Vishal Anand, Ivan Mistreanu, Snigdha Chandan, Abdullah Mahmud and Anton Lunyov were the problem setters while Shilp Gupta was the diligent tester of this month’s contest.
Lets look at some Statistics and then move on to see the final winners list.
