Hello! Do you feel the breath of New Year?

The clock shows a day before New Year, so it is time to sum up the past. I do not have speech-writers for words in the style of "what recently seemed almost impossible, it becomes a fact of life" so I'll be short. Thank you all! Your unfading interest and constant help inspire Codeforces team for new achievements! Brilliant writers, invisible soldiers: testers, tireless and greedy for knowledge participants — all of you help Codeforces do better!

I've dug into the records and made a partial list of the most notable major improvements of 2013. Some large improvements of our infrastructure are not in the list, as the community can not see them directly.

  • A simple way to add contest from Polygon to Codeforces::Gym.
  • Drafts embedded in text form fields in Codeforces and Polygon.
  • Multiple interface improvements in the contest area.
  • Many improvements of Testlib.
  • Notably improved performance of Polygon on large manual tests.
  • Repeatedly updated compiler versions to the nearly latest.
  • Supported languages: MS C#, Python 3, Go, JavaScript V8.
  • Updated Codeforces testing servers.
  • Polygon supported HTTPS.
  • Organized the first season of weekly Codeforces trainings 12 episodes.
  • Supported organizations in the profile and rating of organizations.
  • Added numerous contests to Codeforces::Gym. Probably the most valuable — a large number of Andrew Stankevich Сontests.
  • Implemented checker and validator tests in Polygon.
  • Implemented macro language support in test scripts in Polygon.
  • Groups on Codeforces have appeared, they can contain contests and blogs.
  • Introduced Mashup Contests — special contests for personal and group training, can be easily composed by problems from rounds or from Polygon.

In addition, in 2013 we not only hosted 64 classical Codeforces rounds, but hosted some tournaments:

Also we took a role of ACM-ICPC 2013 World Finals Press Partner!

And as the detective story can not be without a chase, and the annual report can be do without the fun pictures. Here is a series of images showing the growth of Codeforces:

    Just in case if you missed it, there was an email saying that it will be rated round with same problem set for both divisions and regular Codeforces rules.

Best wishes to Codeforces! A very great community for algorithm contests. I love the GYM best, because it is really helpful for my ACM-ICPC team. Very appreciated!

Hm so I usually can only solve Division 2 As and/or Bs. As this contest is rated for both divisions, will I still be able to solve A/B? Or will it be harder?

To be honest, Codeforces is easier to participate than Topcoder for new programmers indeed. Congratulations and happy new year !!!

Hey all, Congrats to the Codeforces team, your are awesome ! I hope a successful year for all of you, people. I am kind of new to competitive programming (I didn't know about programming contests until a year or so), I really want to qualify to IOI in my country but also if I qualify I want to do something decent yet I don't have much time since I'm a senior and preparing for my baccalaureate. I just can do BFS, DFS, a little of DP and math related problems (combinations and geometry ...). What would be the best way and the best subjects to prepare if I only have 3-4 hours a week ?

Thanks

Hey,

Could you restore the mashup feature? Maybe it was forgotten after the last match.

Thanks!
