Introduction to Circuits on HackerEarth

Revision en3, by belowthebelt, 2016-05-01 22:17:58

Hello Codeforces Community,

Welcome to our first ever Long Contest!

We're glad to invite you to participate in April Circuits. It starts on Saturday, April 23, 2016 21:00 IST. The contest will run for 8 days.

The problem-set consists of 7 traditional algorithmic tasks and 1 approximation task. For traditional algorithmic tasks, you will receive points for every test case your solution passes. For the approximation task, your score depends on the best solution in the contest so far. All tasks will contain subtasks which are designed to be approachable by beginners.

Problems are prepared by Errichto and johnasselta has tested them. So, you can expect the problems to be in a good shape, and quality. :)

The contest will be rated. It is a new line of contests and we recommend to read the contest rules beforehand here. This contest is a completely experimental contest, but that has got nothing to do with the problem-set which you guys will be getting, which will be a quality, standard problem-set. Though, the problems aren't extremely hard and strong participants should be able to solve all of them. So they can fight with each other on the approximate problem.

From the next month itself, we can see some major changes happening to this line of contest, with the major focus on upsolving. Wait for it! inserts thug life meme

Oh, by the way, the top 5 participants will receive HackerEarth T-shirt and top 3 of them will also be awarded cash prizes:

First: $100 Amazon gift card.
Second: $75 Amazon gift card.
Third: $50 Amazon gift card.

Good luck to all the contestants!


The contest is over! I hope you enjoyed it. Congratulations to the top 5, great work. Which one was your favorite problem from the set, by the way? :)

  1. Carsten Eilks
  2. Catalin Stefan Tiseanu
  3. Rafael Bocquet
  4. eatmore
  5. Nerevar

It's weird that the top 3 do not have a CF profile. (Or, I failed to find their profile.) So, I've added HE links for their profile.
