Greetings, Codeforces Community!

It gives me immense pleasure to invite you all to the Hackerearth Data Structures and Algorithms Coding Contest, May 2020. You will be given 90 minutes to solve 3 programming questions in a real-time interview environment.

The contest will go live on May 9th at 4:00 AM UTC.

This is a rated contest. There are no prizes for this contest.

All problems will have partial scoring, i.e. you will get points for passing each test case. The problem setting panel includes Jignesh Jinjala AtomicCoder, Souradeep Paul souradeep.99 and me, Gunagya Singh Mamak Lolboyyyy.

The tester for the contest is AmirReza PoorAkhavan Arpa.

This has been my first experience as a problem setter and I just wanted to share that it has been incredibly fun to prepare a problem from scratch. I hope you will find my and my fellow setters' problems interesting, as well as get a chance to hone your skills and learn something new! :D

Wish you good luck and high ratings!

I think HackerEarth doesn't care much about these contest after preparing problems and announcement of the contest

1). During the contest there are no announcements if server is down.
2). For poor problem statements, when asking for clarification No Response .
3). People commenting links to some similiar problems in comments during the contest and no action is taken.

Why would one like to participate in such contests?

    Go to any problem, and at the top of the page (under the problem heading and problem tags) you will see 4 tabs — Problem, Editorial, My Submissions and Analytics. Just slide over to the Editorial and unlock it.
