1 min read

Midnight greetings, CodeCheffers!

The November Cook-Off contest has concluded. It was a good fight for the top spot between petr and lyrically until the final hour or so when ogiekako suprisingly chipped in to the 2nd spot.

It was a well balanced problem set, thanks to Gennady Korotkevich and Anton Lunyov. A big round of applause for them plesae. Gennady, also incidentally made a problem setting debut on CodeChef today. yay!!

There was another debut which we are sure may not have gone un-noticed 🙂 Yes, please welcome petr on CodeChef. He is currently ranked 2nd across most global programming sites.

The contest also had good number of participation from Japan and Russia which may be due to Gennady’s problem set. Indian participation was subdued which left us sad 🙁

Now, moving on to the winners of this contest:

01. petr
02. ogiekako
03. lyrically
04. KADR
05. dzhulgakov
06. raveman
07. al13n
08. laycurse
09. Ra16bit
10. jughead

  1. I think that the short contests should also have prize money like long contests.Top two Non-Indian + top one/two Indian(depending on participation).This would bring more vigor to the contest.Learning is ok but the sense of winning something has greater driving force.
