The September LunchTime 2014 was yet another battle of programming brilliance from school students studying in different parts of the globe. With all top five participants having a score of perfect 400, the contest saw some exciting competition among the students battling with the problem set of Roman Furko. Roman, being one of the youngest problem setters we have, knows exactly what the school kids will rejoice in the given 3 hour duration of the contest. And the problem set spoke for his understanding. The problems were still, tested contest ready by Gedi Zheng. With all that in place, it was now participants’ turn to savor the offerings from our problem setting panel. And so it began with the contest.
As we move into the contest, the utter pleasure of participants in the contest started showing up with the increasing number of submissions and the constant tumble atop the rank list. And to know who stood where the rank list at the end, let us take you through it.
