Greetings Codeforces Community!
The CodeChef February Long Challenge is all set to be served. We invite coders from across the community to become a part of this ten-day long coding Contest.
The Chef’s 11th Birthday is right around the corner and he has a special pre-birthday present for all participants of the February Long Challenge. Scholarships for the CodeChef DSA Certification will be awarded to some of the top-ranking coders. The present gives you the opportunity to win scholarships of as much as 100% too!
The contest will be live from 7th February till 17th February. So code, learn and don't forget to become a part of this exceptional race to the top of the leaderboard.
The problem statements will be available in English, Hindi, Bengali, Russian, Mandarin, and Vietnamese.
