I'd like to invite you to participate in April Clash on HackerEarth. Contest is scheduled on April, 16. Contest duration is 24 hours, so we hope it will be possible to find comfortable time for everyone in any timezone :) Check your time.
There will be six tasks in a problemset. Five of them are standard algorithmic problems with partial solutions allowed — you get points for every test that your solution passed. And the last task is an approximate problem — your score for this task depends on how good your solution is comparing to current best solution.
kostya_by is author of this problemset. Check out his problems on Codechef and Hackereath to make sure that he is able to provide good problems :)
As you might guess I worked on this contest as a tester and that was nice:) In our opinion several tasks will be not too hard for beginners (don't give up and show your best with partial scoring — even very naive solution may give you some points; and 24 hours should be enough for you to read all problems and find some tasks which you can solve).
At the same time we are pretty sure that some tasks will be decent challenges for experienced contestants too. But if you think that classic part of problemset is easy — the approximate problem is waiting for you :)
Also we want to thank belowthebelt for handling all technical aspects of contest preparation.
The problem statements will be provided in English and Russian.
As usual, here is one more reason for you to participate in this contest:
