The fun-n-learning grows a bit with August Lunch Time

1 min read

Just like a small baby, our Lunch Time programming contest series is also growing with every passing moment. The August Lunch Time 2013, was the third edition of the contest and we have already started seeing the number of school students in the rank tables go up. This is equally pleasing and encouraging for everyone.

The August Lunch Time was prepared by Sergey Kulik, donning double hats of editorialist and problem setter. While making his presence felt in second straight Lunch Time Roman Rubanenko, took the responsibility of problem testing. And they both poured all their experience into making the contest exciting enough for our young brigade. With everything in place, it was only upto the participants to come and enjoy the contest.

After the last two Lunch Times, we were expecting the participation number to go a slight up and it did went up. Although, the numbers were not record breaking high, but it is nice to see them go up. Let us have a look at all the numbers that mattered, starting with the rank table.

and the Final stats of the contest.

  • Total Users: 901
  • Total Submissions: 4625
  • Number of distinct users with correct submissions: 822
  • Total users from India: 772
  • Total users not from India: 129

While the contest saw decent overall participation, the users from schools were almost the double of what we had in the second Lunch Time. We hope that number keeps growing exponentially, as there are plenty of talented school kids waiting their chance to compete with programmers from all over the world. If you participated in the August Lunch Time 2013, but somehow could not crack up all the problems, do give them a shot in the practice session. And to understand how to go about them in an expert manner, go check out the editorials for the problems here.

We hope all you budding programmers would have learnt something new during our Lunch Time contest, as it has been our primary motive. We will see you all with yet another competitive lesson in the form of our September Lunch Time 2013. So, mark your time tables and do not forget to join in for yet another fun-n-learning Sunday.

  1. I wanted to attend luch time but i couldn’t because of it’s time…

    Codechef please choose a time in which most of the students are free !

    1. We truly regret that you could not participate. It happens on the last Sunday of every month from 11 AM to 2 PM. We though it to be the best time for the school students to participate as during the weekdays they will have their school. What do you think is a good time?
