The contest will use ACM ICPC rules (no hacks, the standings are decided by the number of solved problems and penalty time earned on them), and it will be unrated.You can submit solutions in any language allowed by Codeforces.It comprised of 10 events this year, spanning across various domains like Competitive Programming, Application Development, Cyber Security and Machine Learning. We hope you guys enjoyed the contest and found the problems interesting. If we just start posting messages about Codeforces to the Google group, they will probably delete them.But there is something else that people (sometimes) read: your code.Address any additional questions to Oleg snarknews Hristenko. Programming Club, IIT Indore and Euristica 2018 are proud to present our flagship event, Divide By Zero! Soon thousands of people will participate in Google Code Jam qualification round.The contest will take place on Saturday, 7th April at PM IST. There is a problem though: Code Jam website doesn't offer a good place to discuss the problems afterwards.
In this post we want to talk about the Codeforces and Polygon improvements, which were implemented recently.To get an idea of what the contest will look like, you can check out the contests of the past years: 2012, 2013, 2014, 2016, 2017. Tomorrow, on March 24-th, 2018 at UTC we will host the second round of VK Cup 2018 — a programming tournament for Russian-speaking youth.As usual, to enjoy competing in this round you'll need a sense of humor compatible with mine! 450 teams that were the best in the first round and the first wild-card round will compete tomorrow.If you don't speak Russian, you must not compete in the VK Cup round, register for the parallel round instead.Otherwise it is considered as a flagrant violation of rules and might be subject to disqualification and Codeforces ban. VK Cup 2018 Round 2 and the round for the first division will have six problems each, the second division round will have five of them.Previously, Codeforces blog posts can either be published together with the translation, or both versions can be hidden in drafts.
