HackerEarth have three monthly contests, which they conduct every month.

  • Easy Contest (It usually has 5-6 problems and around 3 hours).
  • DSA Contest (It usually has 3 problems and 1 and half hours).
  • Circuits (It has around 7-8 problems and lasts for a week).

I eagerly look forward to these contests every month.

However, there was no Easy or DSA contest in February 2024.

I would just like to know if these contests were just being skipped for this month or whether they are being discontinued altogether. I really love these contests and would really not want them to be discontinued. (CodeChef have stopped Long Contests, LunchTime and CookOffs. HackerRank have stopped all their contests — Week of Code, Code Ad Infinitum, Hour Rank, Hack101, etc. I really would not want HackerEarth to stop their live contests too).

I am posting it here because I do not know any other way to reach HackerEarth. Please let us know.

I'm glad you brought this up. I also frequently participate in HackerEarth Circuits and learn a lot from them. Even though some people may say they are standard problems, the adrenaline rush we get from solving a hard problem is just perfect for long contests. Hope they are not stopped.

Also pinging CodeChef_admin here like I know this, but are there any future plans to continue CookOff, LunchTime, or Long Contest. When I was a beginner Lunchtime and Long really helped me. Hope you guys will soon be able to hold one.

    Yes, I love participating in them as well. There is nothing wrong with standard problems. They have fantastic problems and I love solving them.

    I do miss HackerRank and CodeChef contest. I know HackerRank has no plans to continue and have moved towards recruitment. I hope HackerEarth continues contests.

      I agree.

      Also, I am mentioning coderdhanraj here. As I remember he was author in one of the problemset in HackerEarth, although not sure he is still with them.

        Sorry bro, I don't have any idea why HackerEarth contests are not happening this month as I was just a freelancer!

        The right person to tag here would be ujjwald7 as he is (was?) HE monthly contests coordinator, but he wasn't visiting CF in a while :(
