Do you know if we get to choose the dates?

I took the test, but there was no place to choose that in the form.

        I think it is not hard to conclude that people can have strong date preferences, so I hope we won't be arbitrarily assigned to one date and simply informed about that. For example 27-28 August are weekdays when I have to be in work, only 29-30 is suitable for me (and I guess that is very similar for majority of people)

          They sent a form where you could choose the date you preferred, I guess they won't be assigning you the other if you didn't choose it.

What languages are allowed? Is it only python? Can we use C++?

    I think C++ will not be suitable because of lack of appropriate libraries. Python is probably not a must, R might be an alternative.

    I assume they did not want to cover reallocation. :)
