The first round of start[c]up is upon us. It is open to all participants. Registration works as a normal CodeForces round, and will close five minutes before the start of the contest.
The contest uses normal Codeforces rules, and will be rated. The score distribution is 500-1000-2000-2000-2500.
Top 500 competitors will advance to the second round, with the top 25 Silicon Valley residents invited to participate on-site, where there will be special prizes.
Good luck and happy coding!
UPDATE: Please note that the score distribution has changed.
