Hello Codeforces community!
I am glad to announce Hack The Code , a contest where you hack the problem setter's solution to a given problem by providing any test case on which it would fail, similar to the system of Codeforces.
The problem setters of this contest are AakashHanda, deCryPt, killer_bee, Ashutosh_Bang, rohitranjan017, gi_sha, amandal799 and dc99 .
The contest will have 15 problems. The problem setter's solutions are written in C++.
The first successful hack on any problem will give you one point.
Beware, each unsuccessful hack will give you a 20 minute penalty!
The prize distribution is as follows:
- First: ₹5000 - Second: ₹3000
If you love hacking solutions on codeforces (I sure do :) ), then you will enjoy this contest for sure!
See you on the leaderboard!
Update 1: Due to clash with CF #473, the event has been moved to April 5th, 2018 at 15:30 UTC. Update your calender!
Update 2: Due to issues regarding processing times for submissions using custom checkers, We have made the last minute decision to postpone the contest to save the problems. We are extremely sorry for this! We will post an update regarding updated timings and contest platform(if we decide to change).
