Week of Code 29 on HackerRank

Revision en9, by mfv, 2017-03-02 10:47:08

Week of code 29th edition https://www.hackerrank.com/w29 is starting tomorrow February 20th 7:00 am UTC.

Monday to Sunday every day 1 challenge will go live. (Easy to Hard) To get the full score for a challenge, you need to solve it within 24 hours of the time when it goes live. At the end of every 24 hours score for each published challenge decreases by 10%. When you submit your solution, it runs on basic tests, and every 24 hours your solutions run on extended tests. If you are not happy with your score you can resubmit the next day (but remember 10% penalty!)

Unlike in Codeforces, you can get a partial score for a problem according to the set of passed tests, so if you do not know the complete solution, it makes sense to submit partial one.

Score for each challenge is the best score of all your submissions of that challenge. Score for the contest is the sum of scores of problems. Contestants are ranked by the score sum, ties are broken by the time of the last submission that increased the score of a participant.

The contest was prepared by me mfv (HackerRank: mfv), zemen (HackerRank: zemen) and tested by niyaznigmatul (HackerRank: niyaznigmatullin). Special thanks to the contest administrator shashank21j and editor AllisonP.

The contest is rated and top 10 get T-shirts.

Residents of some countries are not eligible to get T-Shirts

Good Luck and Have Fun!

P.S. If your solution passes preliminary tests please test it yourself thoroughly. For example, check that its output matches one of a naive solution on small inputs and check that it works within the time limit on the max test.

UPD: Congratulations to the winners!
