Hi, Codeforces users!

We are announcing ITMO Winter Camp in Competitive Programming that will be held online. On each of the 10 days from January 10 to 21 (the weekend are the rest days) two-hour lecture and two-hour practice session is going to take place.

Each day one topic is covered, and the practice session is a set of problems of that topic. For lectures we use Zoom, and for practice we use Codeforces. Both will be live, so you can ask questions during the lecture and during the practice, the teacher will help you if you are stuck with your code or didn't get something. The lectures and the problem statements are in English. The school is mostly for Codeforces division 2 and 3 participants. You are required the knowledge of high school math and the ability to code simple programs in C++/Java/Python (or any other language that Codeforces supports, but we are not sure we can help with them).

The main topics are:

  • Algorithms, Complexity, O-notation, Recursion
  • Sorting and Binary Search
  • Dynamic Programming
  • Graphs, DFS, SCC finding
  • Graphs, Shortest paths, BFS, Dijkstra's algorithm
  • Strings, Prefix-function, Z-function
  • Segment Tree

The main topics will be covered for sure, but other topics on the official website can be changed depending on average level of students. If you already attended our camps before, be careful, this one will contain the same topics.

Our tutors: VArtem, niyaznigmatul, Aksenov239, GShark, Nebuchadnezzar.

The cost of participation is 245 Euro. ITMO Official Certificate will be given to the participants.

To apply, visit https://schools.itmo.ru/en/school/26/. Application deadline is December, 15, 2021.

If you have any organizational questions (regarding documents, payment, certificates, etc) ask the school manager Ekaterina Rassolenko by emailing to e.rassolenko (at) itmo.ru.

We are aiming that there will probably be two learning groups, at different times of day, for students from different timezones. The current plan is: Morning classes are held from 11:00 to 15:00, evening classes – from 17:00 to 21:00 (GMT +3).

    Hey everybody....I know it sounds very stupid to give away a very exclusive course for free on youtube....But I am not saying right now. Maybe after the completion of ICPC 2022. Codechef has done it this way, they have arranged their IOI camp for the students and then they uploaded it for free on youtube. And you can benefit from the views as well. Most of the people who can't afford your course as you can see from the comments below, but if you provide it for free after 6 -7 months maybe it will be beneficial for various students who can't afford it. That's what I meant in my first comment.

Looking at the website https://en.itmo.ru/en/viewjep/3/95/Winter_Camp_in_Competitive_Programming_2021.htm

"Could you call yourself a programming guru? How many programming languages do you know? What is the difference between high-level and low-level programming languages? The world-class experts will help you gain knowledge, obtain professional skills and acquire unique international experience in the field."

TBH I am sure you will learn but the wording (and price as someone else mentioned) makes it sound like a scam or maybe I am misunderstanding it

The course is very good for people who are just starting out. Of course you can study these topics yourself.

It's simply too overpriced.

245 Euro = 20867 INR -> https://imgur.com/hfKqvcm

You can buy a decent two wheeler in India under 17000 -> https://imgur.com/pzUpl8d

Do you guys still think that anyone will join this?

Last summer, I enrolled a full MATLAB course in one of the top universities of Iran. It was also 10 days and 2 hours each lecture... and it only cost 3 EUROS! Not to mention, the course was great.
