Bakry's blog

By Bakry, history, 2 months ago, In English

Hello Codeforces,

I'm a member of the Egyptian IOI 2022 team, and I'm not sure yet if we are going to IOI. Historically, the Ministry of Communication and Information Technology (MCIT) sponsored the Egyptian team to travel to IOI. However, this year, there is no confirmation from the MCIT's side at all. Our tickets are not booked until now, and MCIT doesn't either confirm or deny that they will sponsor us this year.

Now, there are fewer tickets left, and the cost of traveling increases as we approach IOI. We all have been practicing really hard for IOI for the past few months. Now, there is very little time for us to make alternative plans to participate onsite.

Note that MCIT provides training and sponsors the team every year so we expected more from the MCIT side. AASTMT has supported us with a part of ticket expenses

In an attempt to collect the remaining part, we created a crowdfunding campaign. Please donate here.

UPD: We've reached the crowdfunding campaign goal. Thanks to CF community.

    My country's even better(It's also my country's first time participating in IOI). Maybe the reason why my country is participating in IOI for the first time makes me want to forgive them, but I'm angry nonetheless.

    They asked "questions" like : what's the name of the first neural network computer?(like how would I know that???) and XHTML and stuff like that and a few "questions"(like maybe 8 or 10) on P vs NP quiz sort of "questions" and all others were related one way or the other to development stuff(basic stuff which I didn't know).

    I regret every moment of participating in the NOI of my country, because I was expecting some decent problems or at least can count as problems, but it was pure blasphemy, also the NOI was online and the participants had the ability to cheat and no effective anti-cheat measures were taken.

        Nepal, and I do hope the organizers will not continue this same "question" thing next year for the juniors trying for IOI next year.

        Oh god, I am afraid to even imagine such a thing. That would be horrifying. I want to believe someone must have stood up for proposing some change within the 30 years? Did nothing of the sort happen?

            My situation's also the same, maybe worse, because CP is not really a known thing in my country and the organizer didn't seem to know of its existence when I contacted him about the "questions" not being IOI-style or similar to CP which was amusing. But, yeah, I am also stumped. Hopefully, the organizer took my advice and will implement it next year and I also hope for you that someday they might make a change there as well.

    Lol, "third-world country" was a phrase coined to describe those countries who did not side with either US or Russia during the Cold War. I don`t understand why westerners (majority) think 3rd world country = poor country

      At this point it is more like "the meaning of the phrase has changed" rather than "everyone misuses it".

I am really disappointed with what is happening in this period, whether it is in Egypt or in some Arab countries. I don't know if this happened in a foreign country or not, but I think there is not enough support for competitions and contestants. The state is interested in entertainment matters that will not benefit the community and leave the contestants who work hard to raise the name of this country and its position in this field and the beginning of a bright future with their efforts. I hope that this problem will be focused and fixed, and in the end, I wish you good luck and that you will be able to travel and return to your countries with medals. We are with you.

Don't worry about medals or some contest. Just enjoy CP. I don't think there is any necessity to go and compete in ICPC. So I am not donating anything
