Dear Codeforces,

Happy 10th anniversary from Yandex! Over the past ten years, you have become more than just a platform for competitions having developed into a community hub where people can socialize, discuss interesting tasks and make useful contacts — a large part of life for every competitive programmer. Keep it up – continue growing and developing!

Codeforces, with its immense contribution to competitive programming, is very important to the entire community of sport programmers around the world. Yandex actively supports programming contests and competitions and appreciates what Codeforces does, having benefitted from a large number of talented employees with a background in competitive programming. It wouldn’t be the same without this community.

We would also like to use this opportunity to thank MikeMirzayanov for Polygon, which has become a traditional feature in most of our competitions.

P.S. It is an official account of Yandex. Follow us on Codeforces and stay tuned!
