Hi, Codeforces Community!
Codefest'19 — a diverse roster of high-quality programming competitions by Department of Computer Science and Engineering, IIT(BHU), Varanasi is excited to present Perplexed — the constrained programming event.
Perplexed is one of the most innovative events of CodeFest, whose target is not only gauge a contestant's coding abilities but also how one tackles different situations and constraints. The problemset will include all mind-boggling coding problems, ranging from code obfuscation to language constraints, character limits etc
The contest will take place at HackerRank. This contest will be an individual event with a duration of 2 hours 30 minutes, from Aug/23/2019 20:00 IST. With the creativity that the problems will naturally encourage and INR 50,000 at stake, there is absolutely no reason for a programmer to not give this one a shot!
UPD1: The contest will start in about an hour.
UPD2: The contest will start in about 15 minutes.
UPD3: The contest has ended.
UPD4: The editorial has been published. You can find the solutions to the problem at HackerRank itself. Feel free to discuss the problems in the comments.
1st in India-Rs.6000
1st in IIT(BHU)-Rs.3000
1st in 1/2 year in IIT(BHU)-Rs.1000
UPD: The issue in the checker has been resolved. Following are the winners of the contest. Congrats!
