Hello Everyone!

I would like to invite you to participate in HackerEarth HourStorm #12. It will be held on Saturday, June 15 at 9:30 PM — IST. You will be given 3 traditional algorithmic tasks of various difficulties and 1 hour to solve them.

For traditional algorithmic tasks, you will receive points for every test case your solution passes — so you can get some points with partial solutions as well. Check contest page for more details about in-contest schedule and rules.

Hello Everyone!

I would like to invite you to CodeCraft-19, which is a part of Felicity, the annual techno-cultural fest of IIIT Hyderabad. It will take place on Feb/03/2019 18:35 (Moscow time).

The round will be rated for Div 2 participants (whose ratings are lower than 2100). As usual, participants from the first division can participate in the contest out of the competition. You will be given 5 problems, all of which are based on the theme of our fest, "Superheroes".

I would like to thank the CodeCraft team -- nir123, additya1998, devanshg27, gaurav172, night_fury208, shaanknight, psaini, sharmaritvik60, swetanjal and vivace_jr -- for helping in preparation of the problemset. I would also like to thank KAN and 300iq for round coordination, osaaateiasavtnl., Aleks5d and mohammedehab2002 for testing the round and MikeMirzayanov for the great Codeforces and Polygon platforms.

Following the convention, score distribution will be announced shortly before the contest.

Good luck to all the participants!
