We invite you to participate in CodeChef’s February Long Challenge, this Friday, 5th February, from 15:00 IST onwards.

The contest will be open for 10 days i.e. until 15th February.

The February Long Challenge is going to have ByteDance and Codenation as the official contest recruiters! Yep, TikTok's parent company is going to be looking to hire for multiple positions for their Singapore office, including — Algorithm Engineers, Backend Engineers, Data Engineers, Data Scientist, Machine Learning Engineers, Research Scientists, Frontend Engineers, Quality Assurance Engineer, Research Engineers, Software Engineer, and Site Reliability Engineers. Codenation Innovation Labs is hiring programmers for the Software Development Engineer role and its Junior Trilogy University (Intern Programme).

Also, if you have some original and engaging problem ideas, and you’re interested in them being used in CodeChef's contests, you can share them here.

Joining me on the problem setting panel are:

Prizes:

Top 20 performers in the Indian category and top 10 performers in the Global category will get CodeChef laddus, with which the winners can claim cool CodeChef goodies. First to solve each problem except challenge — 100 laddus. Know more here

The video editorials of the problems will be available on our YouTube channel as soon as the contest ends. Subscribe to get notifications about our new editorials.

Good Luck!
Hope to see you participating!!
Happy Programming!!

    I think Codenation also knows about the rampant cheating that happens in long challenge. They would hire only from Division 1 and you need to get a rank under 40-50(maybe more better). I think that's fine?

      Yeah, I think it's fine. It should be included in the blog too so that people who cheat for jobs don't take part at all.

    Does it matter if there are 3000 cheaters or 4000?

Are you doing anything about those unofficial youtube editorials? Are you doing anything about those really generous people on telegram who help others? Will Sudip Mondal come back?

Codenation will hire through this contest so it means there will be lot of cheating.

      yeah, cheating is growing at a fast rate and becoming extremely competitive day by day. wait, does that mean cheating would emerge as a spinoff of CP. oh, nvm.

        I am just exposing this so Codechef can take some action, which their spineless admins never take.

          If you were an admin, what would you have done?

To solve the problem BASH I learnt an algorithm I did not know existed, Chu–Liu/Edmonds' algorithm for the minimum directed spanning tree.

Since it is quite rare and always enjoyable to learn something new, I'd like to thank the authors.

    Even I didn't know of the algorithm's existence when I had created the problem, I thought Prim's should work, fmota brought it up while testing and Morphy wanted to include that to make the problem more educative. Even I learnt something new !
