The First Cook-Off Win for an Indian School Student

1 min read

That he is talented and an emerging name to watch out for in the programming fraternity is something that we have already heard of Rajat De. And when he proved all that true, when he emerged atop the Indian rank table in our June Cook-Off 2016. We have seen some really celebrated names grace that place in the past, but with only 20 Cook-Offs under his belt, we think Rajat’s rise to the top is certainly worth celebrating. So, a big shout out to the wonder kid from Delhi Public School, Dwarka. We hope to see many such wonderful performances in the future.

Now, let’s take you to the other aspects of the contest. With Hasan Jaddouh as the problem setter, accompanied by Misha Chorniy and Pushkar Mishra as the tester and editorialist respectively, we had a perfect balance of seasoned and upcoming stars of our problem setting bench. And so were the participants, some new, some established, and some just starting their journey in the competitive programming world.

With over 7.5K submissions from 1689 participants in the two and half hour duration of the competition, we saw some great programming action among all the participants. And to find out who emerged atop, let’s take a tour de rank table.

We start with the ROW top 10:

Now, the Indian top 5:

The final stats for COOK71 were:

  • Total Users: 1689
  • Total Submissions: 7786
  • Number of distinct users with correct submissions: 1430
  • Total users from India: 724
  • Total users not from India: 965

And now, the editorials:

We hope you had fun in the contest and munching the editorials. With that we move towards the final contest from June, the June LunchTime 2016. We will soon be publishing its story.

Till then, keep coding.

See you at the contests.
