Hello CodeForces!! Today an update was released from the IC saying that IOI 2020 will be held online and Singapore will be the host for IOI 2021. It is sad to read that, especially since this year is going to be my final one. But it is much better than to cancel the contest.

Of course, moving the IOI online at least for a year will contribute to reduce CO2 emissions :-)

Hi everyone! I've noted most recent CF problems have no rating. Is that made on purpose, or is a bug? If is the first case, why?

Hi again! Continuing with my series of bad questions, I'd like to ask if competitive programming is useful as a preparation for computer science research, specially in the field of data structures and algorithms. If yes, what skills are the most used? I hope someone working in academia could tell me in which way CP helps or helped him/her in his/her regular work.

Hello CF community. I was asking myself which companies competitive/sport programmers are more attracted to, or if they run their own startups. In my case, I don't know where do I want to work yet, but I know Competitive/Sport programming is going to help me very much in my life.
