Hello, Codeforces!

Note: The camp is designed to be extremely beginner friendly (for someone who has just started coding), and the contents will not be suitable/informative for Expert or higher-rated participants.

I am glad to announce the Competitive Coding Conclave hosted by Programming Club, IIT Madras that is scheduled to happen online from 6 to 25 July 2023. The camp will comprise 9 sessions (every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday) and 3 contests.

The camp is free of cost. The sessions will be conducted on Microsoft Teams, and the problem sets, and contests will be conducted in this Codeforces group. The expected starting time of the sessions is 5 PM IST, and the contests will be held on weekends.

The camp will cover C++ STL data structures and basic concepts, such as time complexity analysis, postfix/prefix sums, greedy, complete search, modulo arithmetic, binary search (on the answer), sieve, ETF, etc. The contests will have a gradually increasing difficulty but will be extremely easy, and the final round should be as difficult as a Div. 3.

If you are interested in participating, you can register here (you need to log in before clicking on the register button) before July 5 and join our WhatsApp group for further communications here.

Additionally, if you think that students at your college or university will be interested in attending the camp, and you have some contacts of people in charge, we would highly appreciate it if you could fill out this form so that we can send them invitations as well!

We would like to thank:

Looking forward to your participation in the camp!

    Speaking is not required. As long as you can understand English, you should be able to comfortably attend the sessions!

Okay, so exactly one year back I came across this camp. I had started doing CP from before but had no serious improvement. I was stuck below 800-900 rating, but after joining SPC-22 where I was taught the basics required for CP, I saw some positive gradient in my ratings Graph.

Last year the camp was conducted by the Programming Club Heads AdC_AB2 and Mantra7, and I am still grateful to them for my accomplishments in CP. I wish I would have known about those concepts earlier.

In this one year, I developed my CP skills and now here I am, one of the Core Members of Programming Club, conducting this Camp. I feel it would be a great opportunity to get started with Competitive Programming. We will start from basics and cover some advanced data structures and algorithms. I will be glad if this camp helps you improve your CP skills and have a positive gradient.

See You In the Sessions :)
