Hi, Codeforces!

Cannot understand Codeforces interface? Cannot submit your solution? or How to enter a contest?

Don't worry, here is a guide that will help you answer these questions.

Step 0 : Prerequisites: Determination / Dedication.

Step 1 : Open https://codeforces.com/ & enter (log in) with your Codeforces username.

Step 2 : Select the Contests option from the navigation bar.

Step 3 : Select the contest you want to take part in & then click the Register button. When the contest is about to start at the scheduled time, you will get an option to Enter the arena on the same page.

Step 4 : You will be taken to the Contest Dashboard where you will see all the Problems of the contest arranged difficulty wise with the easiest one at the top.

Step 5 : Select the Problem you want to attempt.

Step 6 : After understanding the problem, Switch to your offline/online IDE ( like VS Code ) and write the code to solve the Problem.

Step 7 : Once you are done writing the code & running it on the given test cases, Now you have to submit the code file.

Step 8 : Go back to the Problem and on the right side of the window you will see a Submit? box. Select the language in which you have written the code & then upload your solution using Choose File option. After doing so click on the Submit button.

Step 9 : Your solution is now queued & Codeforces will check the validity of the solution by running several test cases. If your solution passes all the test cases then you will get the verdict Accepted . You can check the status of your submissions through the My Submissions button on the navigation bar.

Step 10 : Solve as many Problems as you can within the stipulated time limit. You can also view the leaderboard during & after the contest.

Congrats! You have successfully participated in your first Codeforces contest.

You can try the steps by participating in Past Contests .

Friendly Tip : You really can't be good at something if you don't like it. So have fun! Good luck!

This blog is really helpful (not kidding). It may not be helpful for us but when someone tries codeforces for the first time and if he googles this result will probably be on the top. So you are helping future newcomers to codeforces.
