I have a bunch of questions about the codejam finals that are not addressed in the terms and conditions .

  1. During the contest, do contestants have access to their own code library?
  2. During the contest, do contestants have access to internet? (I guess the answer is almost surely no)
  3. The terms say "All events related to the final round are open only to contestants, except that you may bring a guest to the reception.". What does this mean? Can guests be with contestants at all times apart from during the contest?
  4. For how many days are there events with required attendance? (likely this varies each year, just give an estimation)
  5. Is there a better place where to ask all the previous questions?

For completeness let me specify that I am asking 1. and 2. as I don't even know how to write a max-flow without my beloved library. Of course I am asking 3. and 4. 'cause I would like to bring a guest who might not enjoy being alone for a whole week.

I am answering like it was in previous years

  1. You can. There would be preparation time with access to internet

  2. For several last years you had access to internet, but were forbidden to use it (I got permission to use Google Music)

  3. I think last year guests were able to watch contest live for GCJ, but not for DCJ. lperovskaya can probably answer this

  4. I think you are expected to attend both receptions. Anyway finals site should be up shortly (I hope by the end of this week), and most of your questions should be answered there

    3 Yes, we followed GCJ from a meeting room at Google through youtube, but there was no stream or allocated meeting room for DCG.
