Hello Codeforces!

I will hold a Q&A/AMA stream on Twitch on Tuesday, 21 MSK (UTC+3).
You can write your questions in chat during the stream, or send them in this form beforehand (for example, if you can't attend the stream in person). Recording will be uploaded on YouTube afterwards.
Questions written in Russian will be answered in Russian, questions written in English — in English, questions written in other languages won't be answered because I can't understand them. I won't answer a question if I don't want to. Hopefully, the multilingual nature of the stream will be resolved afterwards by interested people who will add subtitles.
Questions can be about anything, but once again, I won't answer a question if I don't want to.

Huge thanks to lperovskaya who has agreed to help with this.

UPD: I won't answer questions like "how to become red", "how to become better at topic X", "how to win icpc wf". Answer

UPD2: Thanks to those who have come to watch this clownfest, here is the recording, including the last part during which my internet has died.

Just found that Monogon and Um_nik have all changed their profile picture! Were these photos taken at the just concluded ICPC Moscow contest?

    Yes for me, and probably yes for Monogon, as it was probably the first time he met Mike

A kind suggestion: would you consider using english exclusively? I think it should be better for everyone to follow what you say

    If you have a specific question, you can ask it in English and you will get an answer in English.

snarknews used the word "circus" to express your team's behaviour during NEERC 2016. Do you agree with this definition?

    snarknews is now using the word "circus" to express basically anything, so it's hard to disagree. We were not exactly trying to win the contest if that's what you are saying.
