Dear Codeforces Community,

Many times, we find it difficult to implement solutions to some problems (generally higher than our own rating), even after reading editorials. There are some implementation details that are not clear. At such times, it is useful to add some contestants as friends who write clean and readable codes. Also, their codes help us to get the idea of solutions (just after the contest) even before editorials are published.

Here are some contestants (in no particular order) that I know who write very neat, clean and readable codes and have helped me a lot so far through their codes :

Name such contestants that you know in the comments section for the benefit of everyone!

Happy coding!

I think I write pretty neat code. Also, Um_nik has great code like you mentioned (I like referring to his solutions when stuck). There's tourist, ecnerwala and many others too.

    Sorry but i don't find his code neat. The code might be the most optimised and everything but when it comes to neatness, na. Most people don't like such indentations and coding styles, especially from India.

Read jiangly's codes, for div2 contests, most of the time his codes are better implemented and readable than editorial solutions (Just my opinion tho)

I have learned a lot from his submissions!

    arthurg's code is the most garbage. Whenever I go take out the trash, I make sure to also run rm -rf codeforce_problems to take out the garbage code.

i think the best contestant who writes its code very clean very smart and very very short codes for very tough problems is this guy https://codeforces.com/profile/KMAASZRAA and the reason of his clean codes is the time he spent to thinking the exact implementation for a problem and his clean codes helps him to implement the very hard problems in very short time

One suggestion to all from my side : Avoid checking Radewoosh code. It will save your time though!

Using the opportunity: does anybody here understand NEAT algorithm, has implemented it and can answer me a few questions about speciation?

    Since nobody has responded, I take up the opportunity to introduce you to someone who can really help.

    I would suggest Ashishgup writes the best code in terms of neatness and declaring variable names that are quite intuitive. In short his codes are pretty much self explanatory.

    Many coders here in India I guess learn from his submissions.

    Also he has a very high submission count. This helps in a way that which ever problem I choose its most likely that he has a submission.

      Huh? NEAT stands for “NeuroEvolution of Augmenting Topologies”, it’s a machine learning algorithm...

      During the contest my code should be as comfortable as possible for me and only for me, and it is, so I don’t need such help xd

Once I read someone's code while going through the solutions and I found it really beauTiFul. I guess that's been my motivation for writing a cleaner code and I hope I'm doing well as abeginer.

krijgertje might not write neat code, but his logic is very unique, and if you see closer you will be surprised as to how a human being could think of that problem in that way. He might not be the best but he stands out.

I really like ecnerwala's code especially for div 2 problems

»
23 months ago, # |
  Vote: I like it +6 Vote: I do not like it

I've seen solutions from all these users. But I think they don't even come close to ecnerwala's. His code is not only clean and understandable, he also has very clear ideas about his conceptual solutions, which makes him write much fewer lines than the average. This distinguishes him from other top contestants, who sometimes write spaghetti code due to time pressure. Additionally, he often adds assertions, which I find useful to know what assumptions are made in each part of the code. When I don't understand a problem, the very first thing I do is check if he has solved it.
