Hello Codeforces!

On March 06, 18:05 MSK Educational Codeforces Round 39 will start.

Series of Educational Rounds continue being held as Harbour.Space University initiative! You can read the details about the cooperation between Harbour.Space University and Codeforces in the blog post.

This is a special Educational Round — Top three contestants among those who are eligible for participating in ACM ICPC will be invited to attend the Hello India x Russia Programming boot camp under the Codeforces + SDV banners, on a full team sponsorship.

Social Discovery Ventures (SDV) creates, develops and funds Internet projects specialising in communication platforms that enable people across the world to get closer and expand their social networks.

The winners will be fully sponsored with their boot camp participation fees, accomodation, and meals for the India location!

This round also has a special regional prize — the company Phaze Ventures, a platform founded to transform the region by unlocking the untapped potential of our youth, startups and corporates, will be sponsoring the top 3 participants of this round from Oman (also among those who are eligible for ACM ICPC) — further sharing the importance of supporting talented programmers and sending them to these types of events throughout the world.

The round will be rated for Div. 2. It will be held on extented ACM ICPC rules. After the end of the contest you will have one day to hack any solution you want. You will have access to copy any solution and test it locally.

You will be given 7 problems and 2 hours to solve them. Problem authors are PikMike, Vovuh and me.

I also have a message from our partners, Harbour.Space University:

Thank you for taking part in the 2nd Hello Barcelona Programming Bootcamp in collaboration with Moscow Workshops ACM ICPC. It was a pleasure to have you on board. We hope you enjoyed it and we would love to have you back next time.

Congratulations ITMO and Harbour.Space University teams for winning divisions A and B! It was amazing watching the scoreboard throughout all nine days as teams from New South Wales, Saint Petersburg, Tokyo, among many others, challenged the top spots. Watch the recap here!

``Geometry is the key to success in modern contests'' states Andrey Stankevich, coach of 7 ACM-ICPC World Champions

Lecturing both divisions A and B, Andrey brought a vast wealth of knowledge to the boot camp, and shed light on how to better tackle the problem sets that teams will face in their upcoming regional competitions.

“What technology should we use to analyze big data?” asks Alexey Dral, Head of Data Science School at Corporate University of Sberbank

Leisure day was a full one, with bus city tours, to gaming, to lectures and workshops. We had many special guests Sberbank, including Alexey Dral, who talks about the impact of a boot camp that is not only focused on the coding aspect, but the machine learning, the data processing and the practices that each participant can utilise to become an ACM-ICPC competitor to be reckoned with.

Scholarship Information

We are offering a Scholarship for each of our three tech programmes: Data Science, Computer Science and Cyber Securityfill out the Form for the January 2018 programme start period or the September 2018 programme start period. We will contact you soon. Can't wait to see you here!
