I would like to recommend Marathon 24, an annual team programming competition — I have participated in the first two editions and I had lots of fun. Problem writers are also welcome, details are given below.
Marathon24 is getting the contest ready for its third edition this fall (online qualifying round on October 17, 2015; and the Grand Final in Warsaw on November 28-29, 2015)!
Meanwhile, we are looking for support in preparing the tasks. We have two types of tasks — in the qualifying round we have optimization and algorithmic problems, each with 10 tests. In the finals there are game-like problems divided into rounds, which require building a strategy, observing the opponents’ moves and being alert for the whole 24 hours of the contest.
Here you can find the problem statements from previous editions of Marathon24: http://www.marathon24.com/archive/#2014-qualifications http://www.marathon24.com/archive/#2013-qualifications
We are also looking for tasks for the qualifyng round and task concepts for the finals. If you have an interesting idea for the task and want to prepare it for Marathon24 — contact us!
Any questions, doubts, suggestions? We’ll be more than happy to answer!
Send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and become a contributor to Marathon24! We are waiting for your ideas till Thursday, July 23, 2015.
