Hello, Codeforces!

We are pleased to announce the 3rd Hello Barcelona Programming Bootcamp in collaboration with Moscow Workshops ICPC, organised by Harbour.Space University with content provided by Moscow Workshops ICPC, in collaboration with Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, ITMO University, Saint Petersburg State University and Codeforces!

The boot camp will be held from 26 September to 4 October, 2018 in Barcelona, and hosted at the beautiful and technologically mind-bending Media-TIC building — the Smart Building of Tomorrow.

The world's greatest coaches training the participants of Moscow Workshops ICPC events will be attending the programming bootcamp: Mike MikeMirzayanov Mirzayanov, Andrey andrewzta Stankevich, Michael Endagorion Tikhomirov, Gleb GlebsHP Evstropov, Artem VArtem Vasilyev, Ivan ifsmirnov Smirnov and other world renowned Russian coaches. The Chief Judge of the camp is Oleg Snarknews Khristenko. It will be an important opportunity for teams from all over the world to learn from these well-known and successful coaches in the ICPC world.

“The participants are facing the problems from real contests selected by our coaches. In competitive programming it’s very important to have real solving experience: one thing is to be able to solve problems staying in comfortable environment of one’s university but championships are completely different. The only way to get ready for the extreme conditions of ICPC is to visit our programming boot-camps”, says Alexey Maleev, the founder of Moscow Workshops ICPC.

So how do you get the most out of the camp? "I think there is no universal solution for "get the most out of a camp" – everyone should find their own path, but the general guideline will be: communicate with other participants as much as you can, make sure you do upsolving (at least some), keep track of how much you sleep," says Gleb GlebsHP Evstropov, coach.

A look back on our recent boot camp:

“Having visited all the Hello Programming Bootcamps, I left the events feeling inspired from the overall atmosphere. I am sure that all teams received an immense amount of knowledge and skill. As one of the coaches, all of the flattering reviews about the camp from the participants were pleasant for me to hear. I am very glad that these camps are becoming regular. Harbour.Space University and Moscow Workshops ICPC have done a job worthy of admiration!” says Mike MikeMirzayanov Mirzayanov.

The Bootcamp will be split into three divisions:

  • Division A. Designed to prepare students to excel and win medals in the next ICPC World Finals.
  • Division B. Designed to help teams prepare for the next season of ICPC Regionals and international competitions. This is an appropriate introduction for teams and students new to the world of ICPC and competitive programming competitions in general. The Division B curriculum features thematic lectures and contests.

The participation fee is unchanged: €1270 per person (cultural programme, accommodation and half-board meals included). Single participants and teams must register before July 1st, 2018 to receive the 15% off Early Bird Discount, or the 20% off Loyalty Discount, which is awarded to teams that participated in previous Hello Programming Bootcamps or Moscow Workshops ICPC boot camps.
