### Caramelio's blog

By Caramelio, history, 20 months ago,

Do you remember the time when you solved your first problem? Do you remember the feeling when your algorithm was accepted? It was a feeling you can't describe with words, right? Or was it normal? Please tell me.

P.S. This is my first time blogging, so I don't know what to write here. Could you tell me, please?

•  » » » 20 months ago, # ^ |   +7 Click on the user's profile, then there is a button called "Blog entries" on the left side. You can see a user's blogs from there.

 » 20 months ago, # |   +13 My first accepted problem was "TEST" from SPOJ. I thought competitive programming was easy and continued to the second spoj problem "PRIME1". I learned I had a long way to go.
 » 20 months ago, # |   +13 My first solved problem was at an event to get people to know competitive programming more. I kept digging through my groups so I can open the submission: #include /* run this program using the console pauser or add your own getch, system("pause") or input loop */ using namespace std; int main(int argc, char** argv) { int n,i,x; cin>>n; for(i=0;i>x; printf("%d\n",746*x); } return 0; } Sure do miss problems like that
 » 20 months ago, # |   0 Me is in hackerrank. I am not CS student or high school olympiad participant, just open the hackerrank website, open the first problem, and in the first problem there is a hint for the answer. I just retype that hint and... now 400++ problems solved in CF. I hope it will be 1000++. :)

 » 20 months ago, # |   +7 My first problem was this one. I was not qualified to Code jam that year, so I just looked at the problem (obviously just C as the first two are too easy), figured out the algorithm and said "Well coding it would certainly be within my capabilities" and closed the site.A half a year later I actually solved my first problem on a Slovak local judge and realised it's not that easy.
 » 19 months ago, # |   +5 Well, I didn't even know of Codeforces when I first did a CP problem, It was for an Informatics Olympiad online round held in my country. I didn't code using C++ at the time, I used C# since it was the programming language I learned for using Unity. It was a fairly simple round, including a problem that needed you to sum A + B. The complex part was, at least for me at the time, reading this type of input in C#. a b You can't read inputs like that in C#, they had to be in different lines. I had to code a special way to get the input in two variables, what in C++ was like less than 5 lines of code, in C# was around 30 — 40 lines. In the end I managed to solve it, and then my journey began, I even went to the IOI of past year (And based on my color you can tell how it went for me), I might not be that good, but at least I'm trying to improve, and that's what counts.I did some digging, here is my first problem's code using System; using System.Collections.Generic; using System.Linq; using System.Text; using System.Threading.Tasks; namespace A___B { class Program { static void Main(string[] args) { int x = 0; int y = 0; ObtenerDatos(ref x, ref y); Console.WriteLine(x + y); } static void ObtenerDatos(ref int x, ref int y) { int[] Entradas = new int[2]; string e = Console.ReadLine(); int d = 0; string p = ""; for (int c = 0; c < e.Length; c++) { if (e[c] == ' ') { Entradas[d] = int.Parse(p); p = ""; d++; } else { p += e[c]; } if (c + 1 == e.Length) { Entradas[d] = int.Parse(p); p = ""; d++; } } x = Entradas[0]; y = Entradas[1]; } } }

 » 19 months ago, # |   -7 My first solved problem was the 3n+1 on UVA online judge. I was so so happy as I had submitted this code 10 times without knowing why it got rejected: #include #include int main(void) { // do a lot of stuff printf("%d\n", res); getch(); return 0; } 
 » 19 months ago, # |   0 My first problem was solve me first on hackerrank. It was adding two numbers. Its pre written code already contained the solution in comments. #include int solveMeFirst(int a, int b) { // Hint: Type return a+b; below return a+b; } int main() { int num1,num2; scanf("%d %d",&num1,&num2); int sum; sum = solveMeFirst(num1,num2); printf("%d",sum); return 0; }
